That would be easy for me. I can run it thru tons of other compilers.
If there is somebody who can fix it AND wants to fix it in the way 
that octave is 100% ANSI C++ (what I think is not the worst idea.)
I will do that. But I have no clue what to do with tons of compilation
messages ....... except posting them .......

I assume the following:
-       gnuplot ist not needed. octave can run without any plotting tool.
-       gnu-make is needed.
-       C,C++,f77 compilers are necessary.

Is that right, or are there any other major things?
