The docs under octave.sourceforge.net are built by the generate_html Octave Forge package, retitling.

This could be a large undertaking for full support, for example if a function in the image package should have links to Octave core functions, functions in the signal package, etc. A first step could be to add seealso links only functions in the same package, or from within Octave core to itself.

See also: dbstop, dbstatus, dbwhere.

interestingly, in this page such links do exist:
