Comment (by alakazam at melix.net):

 I have attached a diff between the current Portfile and the proposed
 Portfile. The additional patch files currently present in the macports
 tree are no longer required.

 However, I realise that the proposed Portfile is not a minimalistic
 upgrade from the current Portfile, and does quite a bit of reformating in
 addition to upgrading the port. This might be better done in two commits.
 I can propose if required two Portfiles (and corresponding diffs), the
 first fixing the port, the second applying the proposed reformating

 Nothing in the octave port should be broken following this upgrade. the
 octave-forge port, which does not currently compile and is probably
 rendered obsolete by octave 3.0.0, will need to be upgraded.

 As octave 3.0.1 has been released last week, I will work on upgrading the
 Portfile this week. As it is a minor bugfix version, and as no problems
 with version 3.0.0 have been directly reported by macports users, I still
 think upgrading to 3.0.0 in the meantime is interesting.
