it might be something like:

--builddir=DIR           object and libraries

which is essentially the same as doing:

mkdir ../DIR
cd ../DIR
../<projname>/configure OTHER_OPTS

I'm reading up on VPATH builds.  I'll toss the VPATH method over to the
Octave discussion list.

What you suggested above IS a VPATH build.  VPATH is the 'make' variable
name for using a builddir that is different from the sourcedir, and your
proposal is just about adding syntactic sugar to the ./configure command
to make a VPATH build easier to specify from the configure command line,
by naming something other than '.' as the builddir.

Got it.
