I can also push a fix for bug #55672, let me know. Together these fixes let me build and use the control package with Octave 6 in development, I don't think there's a need for an immediate release unless you have other fixes you want to release now.

Yes Mike please push this.

I did not expect that packagers would use the non released control pkg.

I have more changes to come but maybe we should make a release now , and then a major release 4 weeks from now.

Attached a change that fixes this for me and cleans up leftover references to nfields2.

I can push this directly to the control repository if this looks acceptable.

If a snapshot of the current development branch of the control package is installed in Octave (any version), the following error comes out when displaying any system

The nfields2 DEFUN has been removed from the control package (http://hg.code.sf.net/p/octave/control/rev/1daba0a58556), but it is still called throughout the package.

I can work up a patch to clean up the leftover references, and delete the nfields2.cc source file that's no longer needed.
