==Pre-requisites==
 
Once you have setup a system with build tools (gcc, make, ...) repeat a few times this procedure:
 
# start configure and watch for missing dependencies
 
# install either the required tool, either the "devel" version of the missing package
 
 
 
The next step is to tweak a bit the texlive configuration file: (remember cygwin as no sudo command)
 
 
 
 
 
    vi /usr/share/texmf-dist/web2c
 
   
 
 
 
Change
 
   
 
    TEXMFLOCAL = $TEXMFROOT/texmf-site
 
 
 
into
 
 
 
    TEXMFLOCAL = $TEXMFROOT/texmf-site:$TEXMFROOT/texmf
 
 
 
Then run
 
 
 
    mktexlsr
 
   
 
 
 
==Source-Compilation==
 
Before building Octave from scratch on a Mac OS X platform you need to install several GNU programs and libraries that are not shipped with your Mac. This descriptio111n will guide you through the procedure of GNUifying your Mac OS X step by step, so that you are then be able to configure, compile, install and run the Octave program.
