Thanks for reporting this typo and providing a fix.
I pushed your patch to the stable branch of Octave here:

Closing as fixed.

I was trying to build Octave and ./configure told me to "--disable-cxsparse". Who needs sparse matrixes anyways I thought, but the flag didn't do anything.

The proper error msg should have been "--without-cxsparse", see patch.

I don't know if the flags are version dependent in anyway on the build chain.
