This particular Fortran file has not changed in years (decades?) but ...

... have a look at the buildd.debian.org logs. There are two issues for m68k
-- I recently switched back from f2c to g77; m68k was the only one using f2c
This switch was probably made around November.
-- Octave itself changed some C++ structures and now requires g++ 3.2 or better.
This only affected the releases of the last few days (2.1.42 onwards).
So looking at http://buildd.debian.org/build.php?arch=m68k&pkg=octave2.1
you see that 2.1.40 built fine on m68k using the default (2.95) g++.
Does that help?
According to the latest figures, 43% of all signatures are totally worthless.
