I put together a much-simplified (so I could understand it) and slightly defeatured octave-devel port to build the tip of the dev tree so I could test that.

It looks a lot like the homebrew +HEAD build file.

It still crashes on exit. I don’t know if the crash-on-exit fix is in the dev tree yet or if it still exists only as a patch. Have to sort that out.

You can take a look if you like:
