As stated previously, the default is to build with 64-bit indexing on
64-bit systems. It is only the BLAS and other Fortran libraries that
are an issue. We provide Windows binaries with 32-bit and 64-bit BLAS
because we are building all the dependencies for those binary
distributions. But for Linux, the default system BLAS libraries are
still using 32-bit integers. If those change, then the Linux
distributions could start to distribute fully 64-bit aware versions of
Octave as well.
