To get the latest package descriptions, i.e. those that have been changed since the latest point release (0.5.2) use:
fink selfupdate-cvs


This is a pure fink issue, unrelated to octave but I'll cc help-octave in case anybody has the same problems.

The fink version of Octave has too many numerical problems to be usable.

IIRC, this was a problem with octave 2.1.40 in fink.
The package was updated because of this, and the fink page lists 2.1.46 as the current version in both stable and unstable branches.

That's right. I have 2.1.40. Fink seems to think this is the most recent. When I type fink update-all it says:

Information about 1159 packages read in 0 seconds.

No packages to install.

Have you updated the package descriptions?
What does "fink list octave" give you?

heberf% fink list octave
