It looks like this has been fixed in gnulib and Octave has the fix in the development branch. I have a successful build on Ubuntu 13.04 which has glibc 2.17. Feel free to reopen if this is not fixed for you.

Thanks. Can you post a link here if your message was on a public mailing list so we can track the progress or submit a patch to gnulib if requested?

Ah, didn't quite catch that. I sent a message to gnulib. However, there is a check in:

octave-3.6.4-rc1/m4/tmpdir.m4

Which I guess also comes from gnulib, but might be updated differently.

To clarify, do you mean that __secure_getenv no longer exists in glibc 2.17?

Octave does not actually call __secure_getenv directly, only indirectly through gnulib. This issue should be reported to gnulib upstream and we can pull the fix into our copy of gnulib.
