Taking Marius' and Joe's advice into account, I decided to keep things simple and use "Fink" to install Octave and Octave Forge on my new Intel Mac, accepting the earlier 2.1.73 and 2006-03-17 versions resp. rather than the latest versions.
It's the first time I've used Fink and Fink Commander, but I was familiar with dpkg, apt-get and synaptic on my old debian/ubuntu system. Fink took hours to complete the installations, and downloaded not only binaries but also source code (and compiled it) for dozens of dependencies (including a 145MB binary for tetex-somethingorother?!). When Fink had finished installing I now get the following when running Octave (+ Forge)
paul-koufalas-computer:~ pkoufalas$ octave
