There are plenty of problems with legend still, but this seems to work now.  Closing report.

This bug is still present in the current dev 4.3.0 (39f39eb4e476).
I filed task #14243 about rewriting legend.m

I don't know when I'll get to this, so I'm removing myself from "assigned to"

There are several legend() bugs (39395 for ex) that indicate the need for a rewrite.  Special attention should be made the subplots with legends outside (demo legend 24, for ex).

When placed outside, Octave's legend box aligns to the plot axes "outerposition" property.  However, Matlab's aligns to the "position" property.

close all
subplot (2,1,1)
plot (rand (3))
legend blue green red
legend location northeastoutside
print -dpng -r72 subplot211-octave.png
plot (rand (3))
legend blue green red
legend location northeastoutside
print -dpng -r72 subplot111-octave.png

I've attached the result of this script using Octave+fltk and Matlab.
