Re: octave-forge dependency?

Ok, thanks, that makes sense. I had a feeling the texinfo/makeinfo
subthread was a red herring.
I'll uninstall octave and all the, err, unwanted stuff, it forced into
my installation and keep using matlab instead.
The problem is, if both miktex and tetex are installed on my machine:
If I put miktex in the front of PATH, the configury of some of the
packages I maintain detects tetex -- but at runtime gets miktex
executables, and barfs. This happened in some of the automake testsuites.
If I don't put miktex in the front of my path, then the configury stuff
is happy (finds tetex, uses tetex), but *I'm* not happy because *I* want
to call miktex binaries from my cygwin interactive shell.
My solution was to NOT install tetex; thus configury happy (no findee
tetex) and I'm happy.
But apparently I can't use octave.
