Since October 9, 2001, dates may misbehave. You should be able to set
the date using the 'date -s' command (as root, obviously). You'll
probably also be interested in the 'ntpdate' package, which sets the
date in sync with an NTP server on a local network or on the Internet.

Not sure. There have been lots of build problems with Octave in the
past; apparantly, it's still not right.

Please report this bug; install the 'reportbug' package, then run
'reportbug octave'.
