I am looking for assistance in changing the options to either the make or ./configure so I can compile Gnu Octave without debug symbols and save some space. (I am using the current Ubuntu release if that matters).

I did a search of all Stack Exchange sites and it appears that in the past questions about Octave have been asked on Stack Overflow. However, I am afraid that if I ask my question there I will be zapped with the dreaded "This is not a question about programming" feedback.

What is the appropriate Stack Exchange venue to ask questions about how to compile/build an open source application such as Octave?

Questions on building / compiling will go well on either Super User / Unix & Linux Stack Exchange or Ubuntu Stack Exchange
