Fixing of-multi-precision

The build of this project fails to find mkoctfile, in the src/Makefile there is a comment “# assumptions to make if not using ./configure script” after which it defines MKOCTFILE to $(HOME)/usr/bin/mkoctfile
Setting MKOCTFILE on the make command line can fix this, but only with make invoked directly – the octave pkg function calls make as part of its installation process.
An alternative to this is to make a link to mkoctfile in $HOME of the tomcat user.
Fixed in build 24.
