I took a quick look at the non-forge packages that depend on liboctave1,
They contain either *.mex or *.oct files and they all seem to depend on
the octave interpreter for working.
We could test them and check whether they still work with octave 3.8.0
installed, provided that liboctave1 is not removed. However, it will be
perhaps simpler to plan a transition and get all those packages rebuilt
