[Pkg-octave-devel] Bug#759426: octave-common: includes arch-specific config.log build artifact

Package: octave-common
Version: 3.8.2-1
Severity: normal

Since version 3.8.1, the octave-common package, which is arch:all, now includes
/usr/share/octave/$VER/etc/config.log. This file is copied directly from the
build tree and contains architecture- and system-specific details about the
build environment.

This file should not be installed at all, and even more so that it's in an
arch:all package but contains arch-specific details. I've reported this
upstream at https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?43087, hopefully it will simply be
removed from make install in a future version.

Not sure of the proper severity.
