Isn't it Java-related? Maybe disabling Java would help.

Yes, please do.

As long as that LLVM issue does not trigger a FTBFS, I would leave it as
it is.

This is a manifestation of #671711, which is unfortunately not yet
fixed :(

I guess we have no other choice than removing the breaks on liboctave1
and replacing it by a long list of package/versions that are broken with
Octave 3.8.
