While making the release candidate, I thought again about whether we should update or not and decided that it was better to update the release-octave target to use the release candidate.  So I applied the patch for sundials and made some additional changes so that now the octave-release target is building 6.0.90 using the sources from alpha.gnu.org.

Closing this report as fixed.

Thanks for the patch.  However, I think this change will only be needed once Octave 6.1 is released.  Until then, the release candidates will continue to be built using the stable-octave rules.

Octave 6 no longer compiles with SUNDIALS IDA v2.7.0 (the latest version that works with Octave 5).
For the first release candidate of Octave 6, the dependencies have to be updated. Also the build rule for SUNDIALS IDA v2.7.0 can be removed once the "release-octave" rule switches to Octave 6.
I probably won't be around for the first RC. So I'll upload a patch here that could be used.
