For what is worth,
As a longtime member of the octave mailing list, and as someone who
regularly builds octave without MacPorts or Fink, let me add the
current thinking about building octave under Mac OS X 10.4.x:
Apple's gcc 4.0.1 together with g95.org's g95 work well under both
PPC and Intel machines for building octave 2.9.9.
In my experience, gfortran has caused lots of problems.
