of-general is not maintained by me, I just noted that it wouldn't build.

You can now use the varval and assign methods in the interpreter class.

But, I would say that accessing variables in the call stack and/or poofing variables into existence is generally bad design.

Maybe related to recent refactoring of variable storage?

From build log:

packfields.cc:87:49: error: 'octave::symbol_table::scope {aka class octave::symbol_scope}' has no member named 'varval'
               octave_value fld_val = curr_scope.varval (fld_name);
packfields.cc:103:48: error: 'octave::symbol_table::scope {aka class octave::symbol_scope}' has no member named 'varval'
           octave_value struct_val = curr_scope.varval (struct_name);
packfields.cc:119:22: error: 'octave::symbol_table::scope {aka class octave::symbol_scope}' has no member named 'assign'
           curr_scope.assign (struct_name, struct_val);
Makefile:25: recipe for target 'packfields.oct' failed
make[2]: *** [packfields.oct] Error 1
