I have 2.9.6. I only started using it because I could not get 2.1.7 to cleanly configure and install (but maybe I did something wrong and should try again). What are those files anyhow? Because to me the installation seems a little slim, there is only the octfiles, a PKG_ADD file and m files besides the binaries. No startup scripts or such whatsoever.

Yes, I think there was a bug in one of the Makefiles in 2.9.5 which
caused the install target to miss a few files.  I don't remember the
details, but this problem is fixed in 2.9.6, which at this point is
what I would recommend you try instead of 2.9.5 if you want to work
with Octave 2.9.x.
