I removed odepkg from the list of Octave Forge packages that are built in MXE Octave here:
https://hg.octave.org/mxe-octave/rev/e50a3ed99da0

How did you even get it? I think it was removed from octave-forge some 3 years ago.

When running `pkg test odepkg` with Octave 6.0.91 (odepkg 0.8.5), Octave gets stuck in what looks like an infinite loop that cannot be interrupted.
The following is repeated infinitely at the command prompt:

 DASKR--  ACTION WAS TAKEN. RUN TERMINATED
DASKR--  THE LAST STEP TERMINATED WITH A NEGATIVE
DASKR--  VALUE (=I1) OF IDID AND NO APPROPRIATE
      In above message,  I1 =        -1

I left it running for about 10 minutes. It looks like nothing changed in that time.
This loop cannot be interrupted. Neither with Ctrl+C, nor by trying to close the GUI. I had to kill the process.

I'm not sure if this package is still maintained. I couldn't find it on https://octave.sourceforge.io/packages.php .
The link to the bitbucket repository (which is supposed to be more up to date than Octave forge) is dead:
https://wiki.octave.org/Odepkg

Should we remove the package from MXE Octave?
