Error upon startup of Octave 2.1.57 after installing O-forge

After compiling and installing O-forge 2004-07-07 (for Octave 2.1.57)
using gcc 3.4.0 on a Linux 2.4.26/glibc 2.2.3-system, I get the following
error upon starting Octave:


address@hidden:~$ octave
GNU Octave, version 2.1.57 (i686-pc-linux-gnu).

[simple text removed]

error: `dispatch' undefined near line 2 column 1
error: near line 2 of file
error: source: error sourcing file


>From what I can make out in the file is that there is a function
dispatch() which Octave does not know about. The checks (make check and
icheck) all work fine, although icheck is not particularly pleasant to
watch with all the graph-resizing and deleting in the GNUplot window. If I
add the two lines concerning LOADPATH and EXECPATH to my ~/.octaverc as
per instructions of the 'make install' output, Octave produces an
additional error before the prompt:

error: near line 1 of file `/home/maarten/.octaverc'

I would appreciate any hints on how to go about removing these errors.

With kind regards,
Maarten de Jong

P.S.: The install guide of Octave-forge helpfully suggests to delete all
functions in the FIXES/ directorry which were superseded by correct
functions in the main Octave distribution. It does not mention how to go
about finding this out, or where to delete which file. Could this be
rephrased or automated?
