cygwin maintainers,

With some strong assistance from octave upstream (John W. Eaton at octave.org)
in tailoring the g-b-s for octave, I am close to having an octave package for
upload.  It is linked against lapack (see my ITP for lapack), so lapack is a
build dependency.

Upstream has provided two binary packages from a single source package: the
main octave package, and an accompanying octave-headers package, which is
required for compiling new octave binary (.oct) functions.

The proposed setup.hint files are as follows:

FOR OCTAVE

sdesc: "The GNU Octave language for numerical computations"
category: Math
requires: cygwin lapack gnuplot less readline texinfo
ldesc: "The GNU Octave language for numerical computations
Octave is a (mostly Matlab (R) compatible) high-level language, primarily
intended for numerical computations.  It provides a convenient command-line
interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically."


FOR OCTAVE-HEADERS

sdesc: "Header files for the GNU Octave language"
category: Math
requires: cygwin octave gcc g++ g77 libncurses-devel
external-source: octave
ldesc: "Header files for the GNU Octave language.
This packages provides the include files needed to compile and link
user-supplied code with GNU Octave.  If you only write interpreted .m
files, you do not need this package."

-----------
Please provide comments on the proposal.

Thanks,

Jim Phillips
