Well, you still want plots, right? But I guess there should be a
possible build for CLI-only that uses only gnuplot for plotting. The
other OpenGL-based backends triggered me delving into the scary world
of the MesaLib package. I went through it as there are always some
visualisation programs that need MesaLib and it helps having a
reference installation that works nicely over SSH.

Btw., my local octave has several added options now:

PKG_OPTIONS.octave+= glpk graphicsmagick openblas suitesparse gl2ps qrupdate

The latter two are added locally. It's only missing audio playback(!)
and the qscintilla component now. I can live with that. As an octave
user, did you miss proper BLAS, qrupdate and the sparse matrix stuff?
I'm not a user myself, just wondering what build makes sense to offer
as a tentative alternative to Matlab at least for some tasks.

I'm in the process of posting the resulting patches … probablly to the
tech-pkg list, though.

Alrighty then,
