Maybe instead of an option, just remove the arch parts.
I don't know what purpose they solve other than adding one more
directory to Octave's path. It's not like an ARM Octave binary can load
.oct files from an i386 build.
I tried doing so with the 3.4 release, but it's not easy at all - pkg.m
hardcodes them as well.
