I suspect a file permissions problem, or a problem with your LOADPATH.
Try running `octave --norc' and see if it still cannot find any M-files.

The script is careful to try to create the directories

possible that something caused it to fail.  If so, can you try to find
out what failed, and submit a full bug report to
