==Do I need GCC to build Octave from the source code?==
No. The development is done primarily with [https://gcc.gnu.org/ GCC], so you may hit some incompatibilities. Octave is intended to be portable to any standard conforming compiler (for example [https://clang.llvm.org/ clang] is
know to work as well). If you have difficulties that you think are bugs, please report them to the [http://bugs.octave.org bug tracker], or ask for help on the [https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/help-octave firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list].
