That is a pretty involved package which I know a little. I would recommend
that make that a Suggests: RcppOctave and test for presence of RcppOctave in
examples or tests.   To my reading of Writing R Extensions, that is exactly
what is recommended in this situation where you "can but not must" use
another package.
