As I mentioned in a previous post, the build process fails if I just keep going.
Thanks for the suggestion Rik, however I do not think re-installing
the whole system is the way to go, and I do not think such
recommendations should be given lightly.
I compile many other programs and only Octave is somehow failing to
detect qscintilla. I read there were some changes in the compilation
flags, could this be the issue?

Just to make sure -- after the upgrade did you get a fresh clone of the repo? I think at least you may want
to re-run ./bootstrap....

Hi Dmitri,
Yes, I did. Stable is clean and I have re-run bootstrap
