I do not use build-dep anymore because it installs other things that aren't needed for building octave and it misses some packages (like bison!). So I also try to keep a list of the packages needed. So far my last was the same as the one in the wiki http://wiki.octave.org/Octave_for_Debian_systems , but it needs to change now, it seems.

Debian and Ubuntu octave packages are built using Qt 4. They will probably transition to Qt 5 in the next Debian release cycle (later this year).

`apt build-dep octave` lags behind current releases and newly added dependencies. I always try to maintain my own full list of dependencies that doesn't depend on which source package I'm dealing with (have they used Qt 4 or 5? does the native version build with portaudio or not?)

This could be listed on wiki.octave.org/Debian, if you can figure out a way to make it clear that there is a set of packages to build against Qt 4, and a different set to build against Qt 5.

Feel free to look at https://github.com/mtmiller/octave-snapshot/blob/master/guest-bootstrap.sh for dependencies needed to build the default branch (in Ubuntu 14.04 at the moment).

apt-get build-dep octave

install qttools5-dev-tools?  It may be that the packager (Debian or Ubuntu) needs to update their package dependency list.

It seems it is solved by installing qttools5-dev-tools maybe it should be added to the dependencies (at least in Debian based systems)

Can you paste the results of "egrep '^(QT|MOC|UIC|LREL|RCC)' Makefile" in the build directory? Do you have a config.cache file left over from a previous build? Have you recently installed or uninstalled any Qt related packages? Did you intend to build Octave with Qt 5, and do you have the qttools5-dev-tools packages installed?

I'm on Ubuntu 16.04. I tried to compile release-4-2-1 from the repo. the build fails with

  GEN      libgui/languages/be_BY.qm
lrelease: could not exec '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/bin/lrelease': No such file or directory
Makefile:27270: die Regel für Ziel „libgui/languages/be_BY.qm“ scheiterte
make[2]: *** [libgui/languages/be_BY.qm] Fehler 1

$ whereis lrelease
lrelease: /usr/bin/lrelease

before that, I tried the 4.2.0 tarball. same problem.
