You have downloaded octave from, right? This is an app
and it is not meant to be executed from the command line. Just use the
double click! If you really want to execute octave manually form the shell,
then have a look to the file "Contents/Resources/Scripts/main.scpt". It sets
several path variables because libraries are not installed in standard
locations. I am not surprised that it crashes.

Some words of advice "—force-guy" should read "—force-gui" and it was
changed some time ago to "--gui" (See "octave --help"). If you have further
issues and they are specifically about octave-app then you may want to post
them here:
