here is my spec file.  perhaps it will help.

put the octave source in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
put the spec in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS
in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS run rpm -ba octave-2.0.14.spec
wait for a while....
install your new rpm which should be in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386

if anyone wants this spec file, you are free to use it.
