#  As far as I understand LOADPATH should be initialised from the shell
#  environment variable OCTAVE_PATH, if present. However, for me, this does
#  not seem to happen, and I can find any reason why; I've tried omitting
#  various initialisation files, but that does not seem to help. 

  You are right, doc (octave-htmldoc/octave_12.html#SEC95) says :

Built-in Variable: LOADPATH 

     A colon separated list of directories in which to search for
   function files. See section Functions and Script Files. The value
   of LOADPATH overrides the environment variable OCTAVE_PATH. See
   section Installing Octave.


  Maybe it is a bug. Check that LOADPATH isn't re-defined in the file 
"/usr/share/octave/". Otherwise, you may set
LOADPATH in your ~/.octaverc file.

   If you like, I have matlab-like functions "addpath" and "rmpath"
that are handy.
