For other Unix systems you may have to build Octave from source.

FreeBSD

The easiest way to obtain GNU Octave is to install the precompiled package as root user:

pkg_add -r octave

Another possibility is to build Octave from source via Ports[1]. Make sure you have your Port tree updated. Check FreeBSD documentation about how to do that. Then, as root, type:

cd /usr/ports/math/octave 
make install clean 

Some Octave Forge packages can be installed in the same way:

pkg_add -r octave-forge

or via Ports[2].

OpenBSD

The easiest way to obtain GNU Octave is to install the precompiled package as root user:

pkg_add octave

Another possibility is to build Octave from source via Ports[3].
