Ok.  To start I recommend you install a package management system.  Fink and Macports are good choices which I have experience with.  Homebrew is also available, but I've never used it.  I'm no longer building the development sources using Fink, but can help you with Macports.

After installing Macports, ...

        sudo port install octave-devel +atlas+fltk+gcc47
        sudo port install mercurial
        sudo port install autoconf
        sudo port install automake
        sudo port install flex

The install of octave-devel will provide all of Octave's dependencies.  After installing mercurial, autoconf and automake, you'll be ready to follow the instructions at the link below.
