Ok agreed. I can't argue with that.

Oh. You're specifically complaining about the lack of oct-types.h? That was intentionally removed a long time ago:

http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/11844593875a

It looks to me like the problem is that the database package just never got updated to reflect the new Octave "API".

I'm closing this bug, marking it as a duplicate of bug #38098. I hope you agree.

I am not sure myself. Perhaps detailing the sequence will help.
The debian package liboctave-dev_3.6.2-2.amd64.deb does not contain oct-types.h I have installed that and database_1.0.4

find . -name NOINSTALL -print # shows which toolboxes won't be installed

As far as I can tell, something has gone wrong - see config.log
at configure:3152 and configure:3174

As it says, configure can't find oct-types.h
and i can't find conftest.cc
My best guess is that Debian should have continued to package
oct-types in their liboctave-dev package. It was included in
liboctave-dev_3.2.4

Well, liboctave-dev in Debian just contains some parts of Octave the Debian considers to be development libraries. I still don't understand what part you think is buggy. Octave, the database package, or the liboctave-dev Debian package?

OK, thanks - my bad
The liboctave-dev report goes to Debian.

Also, note that "liboctave-dev" is just the name of a Debian package. It's not intrinsic to Octave itself. If you have bugs with Debian packages, you should report them to Debian.

I don't get it. What are you reporting a bug against? Octave or the database package?

database-1.0.4 needs some tweaks - even then compiling fails with this message:

When this file is copied from liboctave-dev-3.2.4 it compiles:
oct-types.h
