        this is the first warning that trouble lies ahead .... :-)

ok, we cant find your include dirs either....

i would have thought this would work, it appears to at least in sofar as 
make ( btw are u using pmake or gmake ? octave's makefiles are written 
for gmake, and i know zip about linux's stock pmake.. )

ummm. i think this is throwing it off...

i would suggest either repathing your gcc setup to a more standard path ( 
which would basically be to do a mv up one level to get rid of the 
pentium-linux subdir ), or, probably a better idea would be to mske use 
of the gmake FLAGS argument when u invoke it....

gmake CFLAGS=-I/usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/pentium-linux/i2.6.3/include 
CXXFLAGS=/usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/pentium-linux/i2.6.3/( path to your 
include dirs go here ) 

this is documented more explicitly in the INSTALL file..

only matters if u are a math stud... :-)
