It is a runtime dependency of octave:
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/45956

We could work around it by using octave-cli instead of octave in the PKGBUILDs and .install's for the octave-forge packages, but that would be a lot of effort and it would not fix the root cause of the problem.

qscintilla is a makedep; provides libqscintilla.so.12

This also applies to octave-{general,miscellaneous,signal,specfun,struct}, and maybe more. Since you're the maintainer for all of those, I won't bother making a comment for each package.

Upgrading fails with conflicts

How to fix: Uninstall the package and packages which depend on it with pacman -Rc <package>, then re-install the new version and packages which depend on it.

@drizzd: units is actually a make dependency, not an optional dependency. You won't be able to build octave-miscellaneous without it! Please change the PKGBUILD accordingly

Looks like there's a missing dependency:

configure: error: The program GNU Units is required to install Octave-Forge miscellaneous package.

pkg: error running the configure script for miscellaneous.

Looks like a newer version -- 1.2.1 -- became available on 2014-06-05. The diff for the updated PKGBUILD would be:

13c13
< pkgver=1.2.0
---
> pkgver=1.2.1
29c29
< md5sums=('6e121c6bf3120516817c32a7137d61f9')
---
> md5sums=('d205946284d56a03b06fea1cdf302efb')

Thanks.

Thank you for your bug report. Please report bugs directly upstream. In Arch Linux we try to get bugs fixed upstream and package the fixed version, instead of maintaining our own patches.

I reported your bug here: https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?40307.

% pacman -Q units octave-miscellaneous
units 2.01-2
octave-miscellaneous 1.2.0-1

When attempting to use the units() function (which uses the GNU Units program), I get the following. I'm guessing this is an issue with the version of GNU Units that ArchLinux currently ships, but I have no other Linux distros installed in order to validate this.

octave:1> pkg load miscellaneous
octave:2> units("cm", "in", 183.3)
error: parsing units output "Currency exchange rates from 2012-10-24

Here's what the PKGBUILD would look like with my suggestions:

The .install stays the same.

I've found a way to build binary packages using the "pkg build" command. See for example octave-signal: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=53599
