I've been spending my free time working on info files for the Fink
package manager. I'm hoping to use FInk to maintain both octave and
the octave-forge toolboxes. On the ppc based mac's both octave and
the toolboxes install and function correctly.

However, I've encountered a problem on my intel based mac. Octave
installs fine, but octave-forge does not.

I've done what I can to isolate the errors. When I try to use pkg to
install the toolboxes from octave-forge I encounter segmentation
faults and/or an error from pkg.m

For example, the 1st time I try to install 'audio-1.0.2.tar.gz', a
segmentation fault results

        sudo octave
        octave:1> pkg global_list
        octave:2> pkg('install','-nodeps','audio-1.0.2.tar.gz')
        panic: Segmentation fault -- stopping myself...

When I make a second attempt, I get ...

        sudo octave
        octave:1> pkg('install','-nodeps','audio-1.0.2.tar.gz')
        error: couldn't create packinfo directory: File exists
        error: called from `pkg:copy_files' in file /sw/share/octave/2.9.17/
m/pkg/pkg.m near line 1312, column 5

The error implies that the packinfo file for the audio toolbox
already exists ... However the directory "ls /sw/share/octave/
packages" is empty.

Anyone seen this? ... am I doing something wrong?

Can someone confirm this is/isn't a problem for Intel based Mac in general?

I'm running OS X 10.4.11 and Octave 2.9.17
