I see; thanks. 46521 looks like it covers this. This bug can be closed as a duplicate. (I don't see an option to close it myself.)

There are several bug reports already for communications. The patch on https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?46521 should at least get it to build as config.h is only one of the issues with the package.

Looks like the communications forge package is using the deprecated/removed octave/config.h header file. I think it needs to be updated to use the new header arrangement.
