I had a similar problem.  There were two issues:

        1. Get the right version of octave-forge.  Each release of
        octave-forge is for a specific version of Octave.  It's noted on
        the page, but it took me a couple of downloads to get it
        right... :-)
        2. Instead of "make", use "make -k".  this will continue if
        something won't compile, and skip the functions/modules that
        don't compile.  I did this and the functions I wanted worked.

I hope this is both correct and helpful!
