This is a serious error. This application, or a library it uses, is using an invalid context and is thereby contributing to an overall degradation of system stability and reliability.

The Fink setup does support manually installed Octave Forge packages, too, provided that you install the corresponding build-time package first via "fink install octave382-dev”. That’s what contains the headers and mkoctfile.
I did a clean install of OSX/Yosemite.
On this system I installed fink, and with fink I installed octave-3.8.2
When trying to complete the installation by adding some sourceforge packages I ran into this problem:
octave:1> pkg install -forge control
pkg: unable to find the mkoctfile command, Octave installation is incomplete
error: called from '__gripe_missing_component__' in file /sw/share/octave/3.8.2/m/help/__gripe_missing_component__.m near line 53, column 3

octave:1> help mkoctfile
'mkoctfile' is a function from the file /sw/share/octave/3.8.2/m/miscellaneous/mkoctfile.m
Thus when calling "pkg" octave cannot find mkoctfile.m
but invoking "help mkoctfile" seems to find it.
Also the path to mkoctfile ( /sw/share/octave/3.8.2/m/miscellaneous/ ) is set:
Octave's search path contains the following directories:
Anybody has a suggestion whats going wrong here?
many thanks in advance, -Ruedi
I don’t happen to know if FLTK upstream has patched for this in a development branch, but it’s a problem with how they’re using Apple’s CoreGraphics, apparently.
