Is there something specific about the mipsel buildds?
Indeed, this seems to be a random problem on the mipsel buildd. Some octave-* packages built correctly on mipsel recently, like octave-econometrics on 2009-04-17  and octave-data-smoothing on 2009-04-14 . Both were built against octave3.0 3.0.5-2, so the postinst script ran fine, without hanging.  https://buildd.debian.org/fetch.cgi?&pkg=octave-econometrics&ver=1%3A1.0.7-3&arch=mipsel&stamp=1239954430&file=log  https://buildd.debian.org/fetch.cgi?&pkg=octave-data-smoothing&ver=1.1.1-2&arch=mipsel&stamp=1239721086&file=log It will be very hard for us to debug this random bug on the buildd.
