And regarding the other method, i got errors again, seems to be something
missing in order to compile properly, but don't know what it exactly is:

$ make all

cd src && autoconf -Wall
/bin/sh: 1: autoconf: not found

Solution:  sudo apt-get install autoconf

And for other libraries try similarly with the respective missing tools.  This was my assertion in the bug report, that many tools are required what might require some effort in the beginning.


"Solution:  sudo apt-get install autoconf" - sigh. This is not a solution, this is a workaround.

Octave packaging system is FUNDAMENTALLY broken. Several years ago I proposed to architecture the packaging system, but the developers neither accepted the proposal nor architectured the system themselves.

The fundamental problem with the packaging system is that it has never been spec'ed.

Even decades old GNU toolchain checks the tools needed to compile and make a target.
