One note: For Homebrew, and I believe other package managers, testing the package is a post-installation task: it verifies that after the whole installation is done, the application is running properly. So it doesn't necessarily have to be runnable from the build directory, at least for that purpose.

Add some basic feature tests that oct files can be built using mkoctfile and can link with the core libraries that Octave requires, including BLAS, LAPACK, FFTW (if enabled), Fortran, PCRE, others?

This will also require the ability to call mkoctfile to properly compile and link an oct file from the build tree without Octave being installed yet, another bug report coming for that.
