Try asking such a question of the octave mailing list:

In fact I will cross-post this there right now.

Re: Setting up Octave on linux.

YES! An on Sun Solaris 2.5.1 too!

IMHO the trick is to have the correct GNU utilities installed.
In fact, this is what is stated in the INSTALL file that comes
with Octave. I rebuilt my entire GNU install tree (I don't
necessesarily recomend this) because the Redhat distribution
I had was based on a 1.0.x Kernel (I'm running 2.1.13). Once
you get the GNU install tree resolved (including libs).
It works greate.

I've been using the Debian octave package with no problems.
