I can confirm this problem, as it also happens when trying to build the octave-forge package from AUR.

Hello, I have the same problem that prevents me from compiling Octave packages.
I get this error:
/usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/4.4.0/../../../../lib/libreadline.a(readline.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 against `rl_get_previous_history' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC

Adding Allan here as he's a faster maintainer than I am :)
