Thank you!
I applied this patch in version 0.3.5 of the package.


I also committed the missing file src/Makeconf.in.

Recent changes to dev octave have removed some global path variables, which are checked for in the packages configure, even though they are not used.

In addition, current package repo appears to missing the src/Makeconf.in file
