Comment (by roberthuston@…):

 I still encountered the crash problem after updating. I meant to reply to
 this thread but got sidetracked. I also encountered the "fltk" issue too.


 sudo port self update
 sudo port upgrade outdated

 still produced a buggy octave build for me. I had to use

 sudo port -f install octave +gui configure.compiler=clang

 to make it behave. Also, the
 /opt/local/share/octave/site/m/startup/octaverc file has


 as the last line. It should be


 (At least it was in all previous installations.) Just edit octaverc to fix

 If you want fltk, then install fltk-devel prior to reinstalling octave and
 then add "+fltk" as a variant

 sudo port install fltk-devel
 sudo port -f install octave +fltk +gui configure.compiler=clang

 Use fltk-devel since octave doesn't work correctly with the regular fltk.
 (Note: The "+fltk" variant isn't listed in octave's "port info" output,
 but it still seems to work.)

 determining which compiler to use. But, that's a separate issue from this
 ticket's; so, I went ahead and checked in these changes -- including a
 rev-bump to get changes in place for everyone. Added in r132228, r132229,
 and r132230.
