Porting Octave to Linux

GateKeeper for Dimension X

Hello there-

I am trying to port Octave to the Linux OS for PC's
(mine is a 386dx-40).  I currently have gcc version
2.3.3 installed.  Almost all of the code for Octave
compiled on the first pass,  but I have encountered
one problem in which I cannot solve.  The /src file
builtins.cc refuses to compile properly- it returns
the following error:

./builtins.cc:157: initialization between incompatible pointer types
make: *** [builtins.o] Error 1

This error appears to be associated with the assignment
of the following structure declaration:

static builtin_mapper_functions mapper_functions[] =

Any help on fixing this would be greatly appreciated.
