drop in replacement to update g-octave-db

You need a configured /etc/g-octave.conf

- the script looks for variable "db" and changes into this directory
- it then uses wget to fetch octave-forge pkgs from the official site
- it extracts "DESCRIPTION" files from the archives and puts them into the proper place for g-octave to work

- check the results with

    g-octave --list

- update your local repo with

    g-octave --list-raw | while read ; do g-octave --force -p $REPLY ; done
