No, it does not. It just tells you that you are trying to install binary 
build for a different system. The best way is to get source and recompile it 
yourself. You can either get a .src.rpm and do 'rpm --rebuild' on it, 
or just fetch original tarball from and do ./configure make
make install thing. The first one is preferable if you want to replace
an original octave with the new one, the second if you want to install
the new one (in /usr/local or something) in _addition_ to the original one. 
The second one let you also play with configurations etc...

p.s. If you feel lucky, you can do 'rpm --nodeps' and it might work,
but usually it is a really bad idea...
