Thank you very much for your comments. The octave-forge.eclass
turned out to be much more effective than I initially anticipated
and the individual octave-forge ebuilds are now indeed mostly
simple templates. I will have to have a closer look at g-cpan to see
if we'd be able to fit the octave-forge ebuilds into such a framework.
If so, this may be the way to go and would avoid cluttering
the portage tree unnecessarily.
