I'm fine without building the docs. I did this:
~/build/octave$ ~/src/octave-3.4.2/configure --prefix=/home/ddoria/bin

and it seemed to get past that. However, now I get:

/usr/bin/ld: /home/ddoria/bin/lib/liblapack.a(sgbtrf.f.o): relocation
R_X86_64_32 against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a
shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/home/ddoria/bin/lib/liblapack.a: could not read symbols: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I tried this:
~/build/octave$ ~/src/octave-3.4.2/configure --prefix=/home/ddoria/bin
--enable-docs=no CFLAGS=-fPIC CXXFLAGS=-fPIC

but there was no change.

I created an account on the bug tracker, so I'll open a report as soon
as I get the confirmation email (which seems to be taking a very long
