Subject Software prerequisites missing
Report The list of software prerequisites for Octave shown in this page lacks some required prerequisites.

All prerequisites are listed in the texinfo manual of Octave, namely at "http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/doc/interpreter/External-Packages.html". Maybe this page should link there. At the least, please add the Blas, Lapack, and PCRE libraries as mandatory dependency for running octave, the readline library as recommended dependency.

Further, this page links to "http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/help.html" which seems to be a broken link.

Also, you may want to mention the two mailing lists: "https://mailman.cae.wisc.edu/listinfo/help-octave" and "https://mailman.cae.wisc.edu/listinfo/octave-maintainers" .
