I have added a homonymous dummy function that always return false, since aligning matlab version comparisons to octave's seems to be a deadend.

... or supply a verLessThan.m (based on compare_versions.m, or simply the one from Octave-6.0.0) in the package that maybe gets deleted by install scripts when installed in Octave-6.0.0+.

Its in Octave 6 but the package claims 4.2.

Could include a workaround, or bump minimum octave (ouch!), or ignore this until 6 is mainstream ;-)
