This upload had that fix. 

About the updating to Octave 3.4.2 - the problem is not the Octave
packaging, I have that completed for some time. 

The problem is that dpkg-shlibdeps doesn't like the fact that Octave
uses normal SONAMEs for its libraries now, but ships them in a private
path (so dpkg-shlibdeps doesn't find them and aborts).
So, I'm reading through far too many books/tutorials about libtool and
friends now just so that the libraries end up under /usr/lib.
