Dear List,
I did a clean install of OSX/Yosemite.
On this system I installed fink, and with fink I installed octave-3.8.2

`When trying to complete the installation by adding some sourceforge
``packages I ran into this problem:
`
octave:1> pkg install -forge control
pkg: unable to find the mkoctfile command, Octave installation is incomplete

`error: called from '__gripe_missing_component__' in file
``/sw/share/octave/3.8.2/m/help/__gripe_missing_component__.m near line
``53, column 3
`error: called from:

`error: /sw/share/octave/3.8.2/m/pkg/private/install.m at line 199,
``column 5
`error: /sw/share/octave/3.8.2/m/pkg/pkg.m at line 394, column 9
octave:1> help mkoctfile

`'mkoctfile' is a function from the file
``/sw/share/octave/3.8.2/m/miscellaneous/mkoctfile.m
`
Thus when calling "pkg" octave cannot find mkoctfile.m
but invoking "help mkoctfile" seems to find it.

`Also the path to mkoctfile ( /sw/share/octave/3.8.2/m/miscellaneous/ )
``is set:
`
octave:2> path
Octave's search path contains the following directories:
