Octave 3.6.4 is not compatible with the last version of glpk (4.51-1) which is
currently in experimental. Some obsolete functions were removed from glpk, but
Octave still uses them.
As a consequence, the configure script of Octave fails to detect glpk (but
Octave nevertheless compiles), and the resulting Octave binary does not have
the functionality provided by the glpk.m function. I attach a build log for
The severity of this bug report will be raised when the new version of glpk is
uploaded to unstable.
I looked at this problem in the last few days. My assessment was that
an expert in glpk could probably make the changes fairly quickly, but it
does not look something I could do in a few hours. The API has changed
in ways that make it non-obvious to me exactly what changes we need to
make. It's not a simple matter of changing the names of a few functions.
