This happens because the Octave binding for the PLplot library is built
with SWIG and a change in file version.h introduced in 3.8.0 is
preventing SWIG of working correctly. The problem is described in this
bug report against SWIG:
A bug report against Octave has been filed in the Savannah tracker:
and JWE commited a changeset for coping with the problem:
This changeset does not really fixes the compilation of the plplot
package, but would allow the SWIG developers to get around the lacking of
OCTAVE_API_VERSION_NUMBER definition in version.h.
In sum, until the problem gets fixed in the swig package, the plplot
package will FTBFS with octave 3.8.0.
