The octave package, version 4.0.1~rc2-1 now in experimental, is almost
Lintian-clean , thanks to heavy overriding. There are still three
I: spelling-error-in-binary usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/octave/4.0.1-rc2/oct/i586-pc-linux-gnu/__magick_read__.oct unknow unknown
I reported this problem  and it has been fixed upstream . However,
the fix was not included into the 4.0.1-rc2 tarball.

X: shlib-calls-exit usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/octave/4.0.1-rc2/liboctgui.so.1.0.0
These are upstream problems as well and I guess that we can do very
little about them. Besides that, these Lintian tags are tagged
experimental ("X"). Should we report these issues upstream or simply
override the Lintian warnings?
