The octave package included in emacs 22.x may work in xemacs. It also
has the octave-hlp.el file. Grab the source tarball from emacs's gnu
website. The octave package in emacs 23.x may also work.

GNU Emacs is advancing at a lighting speed. As such very few people in
the community care about XEmacs compatibility. i.e. you are very likely
to find incompatibility.
