It sounds like the libraries and/or header files must be incompatible
on your system(s).

If you don't need Octave's dynamic linking capability, you might try
building a statically linked binary distribution.  You can either
modify binary-dist target in the top-level Makefile or do something
like this:

  configure --disable-shared --disable-dl --disable-lite-kernel
  make -f octMakefile CFLAGS=-O CXXFLAGS=-O LDFLAGS=-static all
  make -f octMakefile binary-dist
