This seems to be a bug in RHEL7's texlive packaging, bug file here
but no response.
I tried using --disable-docs to configure to build without docs, but
apparently the creation of the .desktop file is part of the doc build
(bug filed here https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?42720
I suppose we could simply generate the .desktop file by hand.
This starts to diverge the build a bit unfortunately from the Fedora
branches. Do we want to keep the specs in sync via conditionals or just
work on the epel7 branch as needed?
So I think I finally have octave in shape in EPEL7 to be able to build
packages(I've successfully built one). I ended up building octave with
--disable-docs for now. Upstream fixed the .desktop issue with 3.8.2 so
that works. Hopefully someday the texlive issue will get fixed. I'm
afraid I ended up getting the master and epel7 branches out of sync with
the f21/f22 rebuild, so we can't do fast forward merges from master to
epel7, but merges are still possible.
