Turned out that the problem was caused by a binary install that had been compiled w/o gnu-readline support. Installing from source or via fink instead will solve the problem.

I'm running octave under Mac OS X and am wondering how I can get
functionality to edit the previous command.  For example, in gnuplot I
can press the up-arrow to go to the previous command, but octave does
not register the keypress as an action and instead just shows the
control sequence (^[[A).  Neither up-arrow nor control-p work, and I
have tried several terminals to see if that is the problem (I'm using
xterm and vt100).  Is there something else I could try?  Thanks for
the help.

Sounds like your terminal setup is not configured properly. I can freely use the arrow keys in the command line in both X11 (Apple's X11 dist.) and Terminal.
