Note that release tag 4.0.0 has not been present yet so that

I have tried to build octave-forge package on octave using the script build_packages.m.

warning: creating installation directory C:\octave\Octave-4.0.0\share\octave\packages
warning: file general-1.3.4.tar.gz does not exist

try_install ('signal-1.3.1.tar.gz')
warning: file signal-1.3.1.tar.gz does not exist

However, the existing tar.gz files for general and signal packages are general-2.0.0.tar.gz and signal-1.3.2.tar.gz, respectively.

I have corrected the script and worked.
