Some, but I can only guess because you haven't provided all the
information I need.  (Useful information includes whatever would
normally be part of a complete bug report.)

Anyway, my guess is that since the unresolved functions that you
mention are all from the libF77 part of libf2c, something is not right
with your installation of libf2c.  Did you include all the .o files
from libI77 and libF77 when you built libf2c?  What was the output
from running configure on your system?  What was the final link
command when you built Octave?
