Thanks for the feedback, it's very helpful and it makes me suspect
that the build failures may be related to the switch from i586 -> i686
on rawhide.

For example, using koji, the x86_64 build appears to complete


but the i686 build on koji has similar install failures to those
mentioned above (and those that I obtained previously):


So there may be some i686-specific issues with building Octave
packages as it has not previously been built with the specific i686
architecture until now.

Any ideas on how to address this?
