It would require some work to accomodate compilers that are strict
about namespaces.

There are also some features of the GNU iostream implementation that
are used (the scan member function for istreams comes to mind).

I don't think these are impossible (or even terribly difficult)
problems to solve, but I've never needed to solve them, and so far, no
one has posted bug reports about them, so I guess it is not much of a
concern for most Octave users.

One way to help make Octave work with compilers other than g++, is to
try compiling it with another compiler and then report problems as you
find them.
