Thanks for the pointer, I haven't used this file before.

Good, thanks.

With debian/clean, I get a successful build. Updated patch attached.

The files AUTHORS, BUGS, and INSTALL.OCTAVE at the top level could be
rebuilt from source, but are not dependencies of the 'all' target, so
I'm leaving them as-is for now.

The plot images in the doc/interpreter directory are built by Octave,
but are best built in a fully functional OpenGL environment, so I'm
leaving them alone.

Now, I get the following messages

    dpkg-source: warning: ignoring deletion of file etc/icons/octave-logo.ico, 
use --include-removal to override
    dpkg-source: warning: ignoring deletion of file scripts/DOCSTRINGS, use 
--include-removal to override

Should I also look at adding corresponding file patterns to
extend-diff-ignore in debian/source/options to avoid these warnings?
This file is also new to me.

Thanks for your help,
