My understanding is that octave-pkg-dev already uses the PKG_ADD created
at build time. Indeed, the following command in octave-pkg.mk adds all
paths under debian/octave-XXX/:

  addpath (genpath ([pwd()], '.pc'))

And Octave loads every PKG_ADD located in a path added with addpath.

So I think there is nothing to do.

Moreover, the following lines in octave-pkg.mk seem redundant and could
be deleted:

	if [ -f PKG_ADD ] ; then				\
		echo "source('PKG_ADD');" >> $$tmp ; 		\
	fi ;							\
	if [ -f PKG_ADD.bak ] ; then				\
		echo "source('PKG_ADD.bak');" >> $$tmp ;	\
	fi ;
