I had the same problem. But when I started to isolate the bug, it
disappeared! And I haven't been able to reproduce it, so try to remove
everything and start again! (if this doesnt work, remove the line that
includes errno.h. octave compiles fine without it.)
I have seen the same problem with g++ when compiling guavac-0.2.5,
and I'm a bit scared of compilers which doesn't have deterministic
Another problem when compiling octave and guavac are that you cannot
use the '-O' flag, or it will fail during linking. Is this a known
problem? (I'm using a SPARC, what about other ports?) I'm planning to
investigate it this weekend.
