Yes, building the docs and using the cli-version is possible now, thanks.

With "run-octave --no-gui" the prompt still indicates
"octave-gui:1>". Is this intended?

Building octave (fresh clone, hg id 0a8c35ae5ce1 tip @) with LC_NUMERIC=de_DE.UTF-8 leads to the following result:

Octave successfully built.  Now choose from the following:

   ./run-octave    - to run in place to test before installing
   make check      - to run the tests
   make install    - to install (PREFIX=/usr/local)

multiplot> set grid linewidth 0,500000, linewidth 0,500000;
           line 0: ';' expected

run-octave --no-gui:

octave-gui:1> 0.3
ans = 0
octave-gui:2> 0:0.1:10
ans = [](1x0)

run-octave with the gui works as expected:

>> 0.3
ans =  0.30000
>> 0:0.1:0.4
ans =

    0.00000    0.10000    0.20000    0.30000    0.40000

Setting LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8 solves the problem.
