The tarball specified as Source0 would be extracted and used for the
build, if available and if you didn't make %setup extract Source1 instead.
NoSource just excludes SourceX files from the src.rpm, but uses them
during rebuild, if available. The less complicated version would be this:

# ftp://download.sourceforge.net/pub/sourceforge/o/oc/octave/%{name}-%{version}.tar.gz
Source0: %{name}-%{version}.patched.tar.gz
Source1: %{name}-mktarball.sh

%prep
%setup -q


Btw, do the ftp:// SF.net locations still exist?
