Octave 2.0.16 was written well before the C++ standard, and won't build
with the standard conforming compiler. You have one of two choices:

1. Use 'kgcc', which is an older version of gcc (egcs-1.1.2?) that is also
distributed as part of RedHat 7.x, mostly so that you can build the
kernel. Or, install your own version of gcc-2.95.x in /usr/local and use
that to build Octave.

2. Use CVS version of Octave, which works just fine with gcc-3.0. See
Octave home page for details on how to get the CVS version.
