I have pushed Stefan's fix:

http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/a18e223224c5

Stefan, I have also updated your Octave clone:

http://inversethought.com/hg/octave-nkf/graph/157a3a79a9ba

Pulling from your clone should rebase your bookmarks accordingly, perhaps after running "hg evolve --all".

Marking as confirmed from the duplicate reports. That changeset does look like the cause of this regression.

The reason is changeset b26d6be1767a. By backing out

hg backout -r b26d6be1767a

everything works as expected.

trying to install a package globally does not work anymore. I get

pkg install -forge -global general

error: 'desc' undefined near line 29 column 41
error: evaluating argument list element number 4
error: called from:
error:   /usr/local/octave/scripts/pkg/private/default_prefix.m at line 28, column 16
error:   /usr/local/octave/scripts/pkg/pkg.m at line 327, column 30

I am using the current octave-dev tip.
