Build Octave with Java-support
The Octave package is not compiled with Java support.
During compile, the configuration script checks for the environment
variable “JAVA_HOME”, i.e. the environment variable needs to be present
prior to the build.
From the Octave Wiki: “If your installation of Octave does not have Java support, it needs to be rebuilt from source.”
This could perhaps be solved by adding openjdk to makedepends and setting the environment variable prior to running configure.
