I'm not sure what that means for Octave, which is an interpreted

So, I'm not sure an ABI break is meaningful in this context. But, I'm
not a big octave user, so maybe I missed something.
octave defines a module API version. Binary modules compiled against
one api will not load against a different version. We encode this with:
octave(api) = api-v48+
octave(api) = api-v45+
There was also a soname bump between 3.4 and 3.6 in the octave libraries
which a couple other packages other than octave modules also link to.
