Part of the attached patch has been applied to the svn repo for the ad package, part has not.

If someone is interested in keeping the ad package up to date, please feel free to fix it to work with the current version of Octave.

And furthermore, the ad package is now listed as one of the unmaintained packages on the Octave Forge site.

For the record, the package is also broken on the development branch, because the dispatch system has been removed.

1.) The file ov-grad.cc can not be compiled any longer.
2.) The function gradsum.m does not work any longer.

The patch in the attached file fixes these issues.
However gradsum.m still fails if a matrix is passed as argument:

function y=f(x)
  y = sum(x);

[y, dy] = D(@f, [1,2; 3,4]);
