Correct libraries for installation?

Hi there,

I've compiled and installed octave 2.0.14 from source, on a linux
(modified slackware 3.6) system, using gcc 2.7.2.  However, octave
dumps core when I attempt to use it:

  GNU Octave, version 2.0.14 (i486-pc-linux-gnulibc1).
  Copyright (C) 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 John W. Eaton.

  For details, type `warranty'.

  octave:1> a=3
  a = 3
  octave:2> b=4
  b = 4
  octave:3> a+b
  ans = 7
  octave:4> 3*a-5*b
  ans = -11
  octave:5> a^b
  ans = 81
  octave:6> a^(b^2)
  ans = 43046721
  octave:7> a=[1 2 3]
  error: Segmentation fault -- stopping myself...
  error: attempted clean up apparently failed -- aborting...
  Abort (core dumped)

I understand this is due to a library mismatch problem.  Well,

ldd /usr/local/bin/octave 

returns: => /usr/local/lib/ => /lib/ => /usr/lib/ => /usr/local/lib/

I wonder if anyone would be kind enough to let me know which libs will
allow me to compile *and use* octave?

Thanks for this!
