The odepkg build system has been overhowled and simplified,
so I wonder if this ticket still makes sense.

Testing is welcome.

Notice that there are still some known outstanding issues unrelated to this report, especially with docs and demos.

If you are using Octave 4.2.x you can install
a development snapshot as follows:
[fname, success] = urlwrite ("https://bitbucket.org/odepkg/odepkg/get/default.tar.gz", [P_tmpdir "odepkg.tar.gz"]);
assert (success)
pkg ("install", fname)

If you are using the development version of Octave you can use
[fname, success] = urlwrite ("https://bitbucket.org/odepkg/odepkg/get/octave43.tar.gz", [P_tmpdir "odepkg.tar.gz"]);
assert (success)
pkg ("install", fname)

If you have an older version of Octave please upgrade before trying this.

Is this issue currently still present?

The octave-odepkg package in Debian used to compile correctly some time ago, for instance:


However, something changed recently with the make utility that causes a build failure in Debian (see anhttps://bugs.debian.org/759741). This happens because the default value for the F77 variable in the Makefile is neither "gfortran" nor "g95".

The patch attached to this bug report fixes the problem.

(This report may be a duplicate of Bug #41675, but I am not sure.)
