I figured that out by myself :), I have only small suggestion to remove
constructors for octave_value_list other than with octave_value since
there's ambiguity below in append since it doesn't know which way to
choose (via octave_value or octave_value_list)
   res = feval("...", args);

Could you elaborate a bit more on this?

Thanks, I'll take a look on this.

Sorry, it was problem of the order of these libraries during linking.
There's still problem with `kpse_clear_dir_cache' missing in libkpathsea
shipped in RedHat 7.3 but I guess this does not have anything to do with
octave :).

I'm not sure I understand the above.  Do you suggest that the only
possibility (or at least much more convenient than others) is to write
main program in octave and call there external oct file instead of main
program beeing written in C++?
