@Nicholas: I checked in your patch here http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/8a80c89b021e after updating the commit message to be a bit more informative about what was done.

Marking bug as fixed and closing report.

I'm pretty sure built-in variables were re-coded and haven't been a part of Octave for a long time.  I also used grep and can't find it in the codebase so I think you can just remove it.

patch attached that adds the missing warning descriptions from comment #1 to warning_ids.m, except for built-in-variable-assignment.

Running grep * -rnw '.' -e "built-in-variable-assignment"

at the root of my octave clone didn't bring up anything except warning_ids.m. If it does live somewhere and this just missed it, I can add that last one as well. otherwise, this patch removes that warning from the file.

(file #50565)

The following warning IDs are referenced in warning_ids.m but need an explanation about what they are warning of.
