I applied your patch to the development branch here (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/917f1af7d2e4).  It will be a part of the 4.2 release of Octave, which is a long ways off.  If you need the change sooner you can hack your own source code or get the default branch of Octave from Mercurial.

Refering to http://www.mathworks.de/de/help/matlab/ref/format.html
Mathworks change their format options.

It's now >> format longG
However, >> format long g   still works with Matlab, but it's no longer documented.

The attached patch works ...for me.
