I have a question about handling of plist for a port of octave-forge 
octave-forge is a extension to octave and includes e.g. signal 
processing. The problem is, that the package includes also bug-fixes and 
extents some given functions of generic octave and so it overrides some 
files of the original octave-port. So what I would like to know is if 
there is any way to handle this in the portstree or what would be the 
suggested way to go. Maybe make octave-forge an option of octave so 
there is just one pkg-plist to handle or I don't know. I have made a 
standalone port of octave-forge last year in june, but I can't release 
it before this is solved. Any suggestions?

Thanks and greets,
