It has been suggested that the binary components of octave packages be installed in /usr/lib{,64}/octave rather than /usr/libexec/octave. 
This is what happens now for rpm installed Octave on my Fedora 14 x86_64 system:
[root@pbds ~]# ls -l /usr/lib64/octave-3.2.4/

====================================
Seems OK.

That octave itself, not octave packages.  Install octave-forge and take a look at /usr/libexec/octave.
