Thank you, this worked.  And the maintainers confirmed that this distribution 
of Octave was compiled with GCC 4.3.4.

On a related note, what BLAS package is recommended for this SUSE distribution 
of Octave (or any of the Linux distributions)?  I have code that I've been 
running on both Windows distributions, and openBLAS seems to be the recommended 
package (and has been the fastest on my application) there.  My SUSE machine 
only has the default BLAS package installed at the moment(3.4.2?), but the code 
seems to be running pretty well.  OpenBLAS is available in my rpm repository 
but is not installed.  Does anyone have any thoughts on whether I should bother 
with installing OpenBLAS for the SUSE SLE11 distribution of Octave 3.6.4?

Thanks again,
