I'm getting a build test failure building doctest for Fedora with octave 6.1.0:

+ octave -H -q --no-window-system --no-site-file --path /builddir/build/BUILD/doctest-0.7.0/inst --path /builddir/build/BUILD/doctest-0.7.0/src --eval 'r=doctest({"doctest","test/","test/examples/"}); exit(~r);'
Doctest v0.7.0: this is Free Software without warranty, see source.
error: regexprep: nothing to repeat at position 9 of expression
error: called from
    doctest_collect>parse_texinfo at line 480 column 9

    doctest_collect>collect_targets_function at line 250 column 36
