It does not seem to be difficult at all.   A number of people have done
it.   Look at the help-octave mailing list archive for 2000.   It is
discussed May 3, April 17,  and February 7.  
It was probably discussed in  the 1999 archive also.  Basically it comes
down to the fact that you need to link with a few libraries.    

I have no comment on scilab as I have never done any thing other than
run the demos.
