Just guessing here, but is the file /usr/lib/octave/ an
actual shared object, or a symbolic link to another file
( Assuming it is a link, it is possible for the
file to exist even if its target doesn't, so does the target exist?

If the target does exist, is it a proper shared object? (you can check
with the 'file' command).

If it does exist and is a shared object, I've no idea why
LD_LIBRARY_PATH wouldn't work, but you could perhaps try running
ldconfig on the directory manually to see if any errors are reported.
