I installed octave via fink, and right now i'm trying to get octave-forge
to work. When i type "make" on octave forge directory, I got this
following error:

/usr/bin/ld: warning multiple definitions of symbol _FSrand_gnu_v2

the warnings are expected

/sw/bin/octave definition of _Frandn__FRC17octave_value_listi
strip rand.oct
strip: symbols referenced by indirect symbol table entries that can't be
stripped in: rand.oct

The problem is that the strip option is conflicting with OS X.
Comment it out in mkoctfile (see archives for a previous discussion)

Remember to switch to gcc2 since fink installs octave compiled with gcc 2.95. Use "sudo gcc_select 2" to change compiler. See "gcc_select -h" for info on the script.

Some time ago I contributed a fink package for octave-forge available at index.php?func=detail&aid=585392&group_id=17203&atid=414256

It is intended for OS X 10.1.x so you still need to switch compiler or edit the .info file to make fink swith for you. See fink docs for more info, it should only be a matter of adding a flag.

I'll be away for two weeks, so I can't help you any further but there are probably people here or on the fink lists that can assist you.

Good luck,
