Update for math/octave
Fix: Notice that several files get removed.
Over to maintainer (via the GNATS Auto Assign Tool)
I submitted an update to octave-3.4.0. But there is no hurry. In
particular, I found that some old octave-forge packages will no longer
build, and I will probably have to mark them BROKEN.
I removed a lot of your post-install code. To be honest, I didn't
understand most of it. I reverted to the old fashioned pkg-plist format
which simply lists all of the files and directories installed. The only
part of "post-install" I kept was installation of DOCS. I also removed
the "TERMIOS_H" line in the Makefile. There was no reference to this in
the source code (although there were many references to
"HAVE_TERMIOS_H"). I am guessing you were fixing a problem that is now
fixed in the octave build process.
I added a DEPENDS to texinfo, because octave needs a more up to date
version of makeinfo than FreeBSD-8 currently has. This is both a
BUILD_DEPENDS and a RUN_DEPENDS, because the scripts that install the
octave-forge ports also need it. (See the post-patch code I added.)
I removed patches in "files" that (a) no longer applied and (b) which I
didn't understand. I hope this isn't a problem. I also removed
"octave.in" because that also no longer seemed necessary.
I looked over this PR. I realized I made several mistakes.
I'll try to work on getting it right. I don't know how long that will
take. If you want to close this PR in the meantime, I won't mind.
Otherwise I'll send a better diff in a while.
Here is a much better diff file. Please use this instead of the prior
Note that four files are now removed.

Next, I have now followed Maho's original code in post-install that
automatically creates most of PLIST. I also added some code that
creates the appropriate mkdir's for the empty directories, so these are
no longer listed explicitly in pkg-plist.
I also now understand why you have this in your Makefile:
A lot of the other stuff you had in post-install is no longer required,
because the makers of octave must have fixed a lot of problems with the
