An eon ago (in internet time) I participated in a similar discussion. Here is a URL to the archive http://www.beowulf.org/pipermail/beowulf/1999-June/005483.html
At that time (1999) Octave was definitely not "MPI aware", I'm not even sure it would take advantage of SMP.
Hopefully some of the links to relevant projects are still around!

Octave is a nice MatLab clone ... it does most of what I would use MatLab for.
I don't know what kind of info you want but you might start by contacting the author.
If somebody is doing a parallel implementation of octave I'd like to know about it too.
here's the info from freshmeat http://freshmeat.net/projects/octave/
Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command
interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical
experiments. It may
also be used as a batch-oriented language.
