Compilation of the secs2d package against Octave 6.1 fails with this error message:

/usr/bin/mkoctfile --verbose -c  Ubern.cc -o Ubern.o
Ubern.cc: In function ‘octave_value_list FUbern(const octave_value_list&, int)’:
Ubern.cc:118:26: error: ‘class NDArray’ has no member named ‘length’
  118 |   octave_idx_type lx = X.length();
      |                          ^~~~~~
make[1]: *** [Makefile:13: Ubern.o] Error 1

The patch attached to this bug report fixes the problem.

Note that the patch included in [#44803 https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?44803] must also be applied, in order to build against Octave 6.1.
