There have been issues with the gcc4.2 toolchain not building, which I
understand are now fixed, but octave seems to be using gcc3.4 and I'm
not aware of any recent linking problems there.

It looks like the octave link is quite big, which may be tickling some
kind of bug, or possibly just running out of memory on the build
machine. That machine is a 256MB netwinder. Is octave lots of C++?
That can really make such a machine struggle (although it's less of a
problem with gcc3 than gcc4).

I should be able to try it on a 512Mb machine in next few days.
