#I don't know if anybody noticed, but since November 1994 (or so) there
#exists a new (updated) version of Lapack (Fortran version).
#It might be a good idea to bring octave into sync with any new files in
#the new Lapack version.
New version reminds me of another library which goes into Octave: kpathsea
As I was updating my LaTeX installation, I noticed that the kpathsea
library is now upto version 2.6.
