You need to tell the compiler to create an instance of the
Array<float> type.  Try adding

template class ArrayRep<float>;
template class Array<float>;

to your file.  With future versions of Octave, you will only need to
instantiate Array<TYPE>, and maybe someday, g++ will do this

If you use Array<float> in more than one file, you can put the
instantiation in a separate file.

: The above works fine with ``Array<double>'' but fails for every other
: type.

It works for Array<double> because that instance of the Array class is
already in the library.  Octave doesn't need Array<float>, so it's not
in there.
