Ah! Thanks Orion! That makes sense. I put the mex file in the right
%{octpkglibdir}/%{octave_host}-%{octave_api} folder and now it is loaded

Do you think this should/could be added to the guidelines? It doesn't
mention %{octave_host} for example, and a note that says something like
"For arch specific bits, Octave looks at
%{octpkglibdir}/%{octave_host}-%{octave_api}" would help us novice
octave packagers. I suspect a few of us aren't aware of this bit :)
