Released source tarballs are available at []. You will normally want to use one of those.
The download page also contains instructions to download the development sources. If you are using the development sources, be sure to type the following command before configuring:
configure: WARNING: to use any of Octave's plotting commands
It may help to call configure with CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/include/freetype2, please see [ Problems with FTGL building octave-3.1.51],[ Problems with FTGL building octave-3.1.51],[Building ftgl backend with current tip]. Note that from [ changeset 8269] onward, this workaround should no longer be needed, please see [ No FTGL, says configure script?]
Another possible error occurs at the 'make' stage:
/usr/include/c++/3.3.1/bits/basic_string.h:228: undefined reference to `std::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> >::_S_empty_rep_storage'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

To run your own tests use the [ [RunInPlace]] shell script.
