Hi, I just wanted to point out that since Octave 8.2 is released now, the database package still won't build.
As a workaround, I downloaded the .tar-archive from the octave-packages site, unpacked it, inserted the patch from below, compressed it to a .tar.gz archive again, used "pkg build ..." to build an installable archive, and then called "pkg install ..." for that rebuilt archive. It worked but I don't know if other users want to rely on that workaround as well.

For Octave 8, `error_state` will finally be removed after years of it not being set to anything other than 0.
This leads to a different branch being compiled in `error-helpers.h`. IIUC, that branch misses a change that was already done in the other code path.
I'll upload a possible patch as soon as I'll have a bug number.
