Yeah if I get to it tonight I can file bug reports for the rest of the packages (= those w/o bug report).

mkoctfile is being taken care of (bug #47367), building for it right now.

I'll close this specific bug report.

On build using dev octave '74a676d5ce09: use safe_source_file for PKG_ADD and PKG_DEL files'

I get the same compile failures of packages as you mention in comment #17.

Some of them already have their own bug reports:

communications (bug #47267)

interval (bug #47288)

mkoctfile appears to be also not work at that version of dev.

@JWE:
The "@OCT_LINK_OPTS@: No such file or directory" errors are gone, thank you.

@JohnD:

of-control (cross)builds fine now, thanks, so I think this bug report should be closed, but just to confirm, the other OF package you mentioned still do not build:
optim
struct
communications
lssa
odepkg
video
sparsersb
interval

BTW mkoctfile doesn't work anymore on the Windows side. I'll enter a separate bug report for that.

I checked in some changes that I think should fix the build problem.

Yes, I know it's broken.  I'm working on it.

Maybe related, but at the moment during cross-building packages I get loads of configure errors along the lines of:

:
x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++: error: @OCT_LINK_OPTS@: No such file or directory
x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++: error: @OCT_LINK_DEPS@: No such file or directory
configure: error: Could not run /home/philip/devel/octdev/mxe/mxe_w64_20160224/usr/bin/x86_64-w64-mingw32-mkoctfile --verbose

with several packages.
In addition, mkoctfile doesn't work anymore (once in Windows), it gives e.g.,:

>> mkoctfile csv2cell.cc
mkoctfile: no way to compile C++ file csv2cell.cc
warning: mkoctfile: building exited with failure status
warning: called from
    mkoctfile at line 171 column 5

I suppose that Octave's build system is in such a transient state that we'd better wait until the dust is settled before attempting to again build OF packages.
What do you think?

The last MXE build that worked for me w/o problems was based on Octave from Feb 19, but with an MXE updated to only maybe end of January.

odepkg has a lot of GCC_ATTR_UNUSED variables , which are no longer seen in octave (replaced by OCTAVE_UNUSED ?)

With change in comment #11 I can cross build additional ones you could not in comment #8 (haven't tried running yet)

Packages that wont cross compile for me (yet):

optim

struct

comms - bug #47267

lssa

odepkg

interval

sparsersb

video

Hopefully most of them are the same issue. It builds fine with the 4.0.X octave, so must be issues with changesets in dev octave.

If noone else gets to it first, I will take a look as time permits.

of-control installs fine on Linux.

I have no more time now for other bug reports, but:
- communications
- optim
- signal
- netcdf
- image
- lssa
- odepkg
- tisean
- sparsersb
- video
do not cross-build either in MXE.
netcdf, control, image and lssa do get built on Linux.

Looks like with the new octave-config.h stuff, the F77_FUNC defines are not transfered over from config.h

OK, your patch fixes a first error. Thanks!

Thanks.
I saw that it must have been an core Octave issue but couldn't figure out where octave-config.h is generated.

It is a typo in the octave sources from this changeset http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/8376de2eaf00
