Sure, converting Octave to use both automake and libtool would
probably be good things to do.  I don't have the time, but I'd be
willing to integrate patches if they can support all of the features
of the current Octave Makefiles.  If you want to do it, please work
with the 2.1.x sources.  I'm not interested in changing the 2.0.x
Makefiles at this point.
