Thanks but I found where the problem comes from.  It is caused by the
presence of PKG_ADD when the command "pkg -verbose -nodeps install ." is
executed.  In PKG_ADD, the command toggle_grace_use is called (what, BTW, is
essentially wrong, IMO) and that only works if a X display is available.

I can build graceplot if I aplly the following patch to the
octave-pkg-dev package:

--- octave-pkg.mk.in    (revision 1945)
+++ octave-pkg.mk.in    (working copy)
@@ -54,10 +54,10 @@
                      [pwd(),'/$(debpkg)/$(bpath)']);           \
                 pkg ('local_list', [pwd(),'.']);               \
                 pkg ('global_list', [pwd(),'.']);              \
+                pkg -verbose -nodeps install .;                \
                 if (glob ('PKG_ADD.bak')),                     \
                     movefile ('PKG_ADD.bak', 'PKG_ADD');       \
-                endif;                                         \
-                pkg -verbose -nodeps install ."
+                endif;"
        dh_install --package=$(package)
I think the movefile command came before "pkg install" because PKG_ADD was
expected to be also installed.  However, it seems that the use of PKG_ADD is
now deprecated.

If nobody objects, I will patch graceplot to include the autoload calls
directly in the source files.  Also, I will patch octave-pkg-dev as above
and upload it.
