Huh??? octave_config_info is a variable and the function exist checks
for its existence, hence the name of the function :-). As this variable
is a built in under octave and doesn't exist under matlab, the test in
the if-statement is harmless. 

The one case that might cause you troubles is if a matlab user decided
that they wanted to definite the variable used in the test.
