I don't think it would be too difficult, but I am probably not the

Yes, all of Octave, including the libraries, is released under the
terms of the GPL, not the Lesser (formerly Library) GPL.  This is
intentional, and I have no plans to change the terms.  So if your
code links to the Octave libraries, you must meet the requirements of
the GPL.



Octave is freely available under the terms of the GNU GPL.
