Latest build problems with octave and OS X

I'm posting this to both the octave-help and the Apple unix-porting lists
because this type of problem straddles both camps. The original octave make
file is usually done for Linux with a bash shell as a basis. Are there any
ideas about how to fix the build to work on a Mac?

The build was done on OS X 10.3.6 with Xcode 1.5 and the November 2004 gcc
3.3 update installed.

In compiling the latest sourceforge version of octave-2.1.64, the Mac build
fails with the following symbol problems

ld: warning multiple definitions of symbol _xerbla_
blas-xtra/xerbla.o definition of _xerbla_ in section (__TEXT,__text)
.framework/Versions/A/libBLAS.dylib(single module) definition of _xerbla_
ld: Undefined symbols:
/usr/bin/libtool: internal link edit command failed
make[3]: *** [libcruft.dylib] Error 1
make[2]: *** [libraries] Error 2
make[1]: *** [libcruft] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

_xerbla is apparently the BLAS error handler routine. Also, what library is
missing for the other routines on the Mac? What other library is needed? How
do we tell the Mac version to use the native Mac stuff?

Thanks for any help.
