[Pkg-octave-devel] Building octave from git clone fails

Building the octave from a freshly cloned repository is failing for 
me, with this error message:

    ../build-aux/missing: 81: ../build-aux/missing: gperf: not found

It is strange, because gperf would be needed only if octave.gperf is more 
recent than oct-gperf.h.  Now, we have:

    gbp clone git://git.debian.org/git/pkg-octave/octave.git
    cd octave
    $ stat libinterp/parse-tree/*gperf* | grep '\(File\|Change\):'
      File: ‘libinterp/parse-tree/octave.gperf’
    Change: 2016-01-23 14:19:02.862901791 -0200
      File: ‘libinterp/parse-tree/oct-gperf.h’
    Change: 2016-01-23 14:19:02.858901820 -0200

There may be something wrong with my settings.  Do you succeed to build 
the package from Git now?
