I never used "scientific linux" but from what I've read the wiki parts
for RHEL/CentOS can be used.

Have you installed octave via some package manager (yum?), then you
should also install netcdf this way. If it's not available you have to
install the octave-devel-* packages (via yum) which provides mkoctfile
and libs needed to build forge packages.

Obviously you also have to install the dependencies yourself. configure
tells you which one are needed but aren't found:

go and install these development libaries with yum, I guess they are
named libgraphicsmagick....-dev and so on.

Good luck and happy hacking
