Hi all

I'm one of the admins of a largish 7000 core Debian cluster running Lenny for 
at least the foreseeable future. However, we have users who need to have 
octave 3.2 on several machines, thus I'm tempted to backport at least the core 

However, I'm a bit confused about the raised build-deps as I can compile 
octave manually on lenny, but not the squeeze source package.

Is there a specific reason why these dependencies were raised when compared to 

Cheers and thanks a lot for a brief reply!
