It's a bug in the configuration, and since it's harmless, nobody had
bothered to remove it. However, it should be fixed in recent CVS. If
not, please send a note to Octave mailing list.

It's used for resolving symbols in the executable itself when using
dynamic loading, and typically is a synonym for whatever the native 
linker expects (-export-dynamic on Linux for example). On some OS's
such as IRIX, it's ignored, and just works. On others such as Cygwin,
it's a bit more tricky, since you'll have to explicitly export all
the symbols that you want to load dynamically.
