Amazingly, it still hangs with --no-window-system. I still have to `unset DISPLAY` before running makepkg.
Maybe `env -i octave` could be a solution.

Also, the compile still fails with the same problem (octave/base-lu.h isn't included in extra/octave anymore).

Found the problem. /usr/bin/octave is the graphical interface by default since a few months on Arch.
If I unset DISPLAY, the build doesn't hang anymore.
Aren't package building systems supposed to sanitize environment variables, though!?

Now the compile fails (but the package gets built, with empty contents):
In file included from galois-def.cc:21:0:
galois.h:25:28: fatal error: octave/base-lu.h : No such file or directory
#include <octave/base-lu.h>

extra/octave doesn't include the file anymore, but it used to.

The compile hangs for me, on "checking for Octave HDF5 preprocessor flags... "

Known issue: https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?47267

No workaround available other than patching Octave source.

The package fails to compile with the latest release, "galois.h:25:28: fatal error: octave/base-lu.h: No such file or directory".
