This suggests three answers:
First, You can specify a host system by giving it as an argument to
configure. Ie, on my Pentium,
passes exactly the same value to configure that it would have guessed
anyway. See './configure --help' for more options.
Second, you can also use a precompiled version as (statically-linked)
binaries for Linux are provided by John Eaton at the Octave website.
Third, I suspect that your installation of DLD Linux is incomplete. I have
compiled GNU software under SunOS, AIX, Linux, ... and have always seen
configure coming up with a reasonable guess. In case you have everything you
should need installed: complain loud and clear to Deutsche Linux Distribution
(DLD) for shipping you a hosed system. Octave builds just fine on a variety
of other Linux systems.
