I, for one, would appreciate an up-to-date octave-devel on macports if someone has the time. In particular, in the current build of the release version (4.2.1) the GUI still crashes on exit.

I’ve, at times, kept a more up to date local version of octave-devel, but for the better part of a year, our download scheme has yielded broken archives for octave-devel (pulled from hg). I haven’t had time to investigate what is going on.
