[Pkg-octave-devel] Running Octave tests under xvfb

I guess that this problem will be eventually fixed and xvfb will work 
with Qt5.

This is probably a better solution, but it has the same drawbacks as the 
xvfb solution, as pointed out by Antonio in the other message, namely 
that it will add gnuplot-nox dependency to all packages (the majority of 
them do not need it) and that it will need an upload of autodep8 to 
stretch-backports in order to have the tests working on ci.d.o.

I will have a try on the solution proposed by Antonio.
