Okay, I've found time to take a closer look at this problem, and you're
right that it's related to configure.  Specifically, it's related to a
buggy and unusable octave:

$ octave --version
Illegal instruction
$ octave -q -f <<EOF
>         printf(octave_config_info("localfcnfilepath"));
Illegal instruction

This results in files being installed to /usr instead of to

Could this be related to an out-of-date lapack3 on alpha?
