Follow-up Comment #31, bug #51632 (project octave):

Since bug #51684 is the new meta-bug about all path portability issues, can we
focus this bug on the specific issue that when OCTAVE_HOME changes, the user
needs to run "pkg rebuild -global"?

I found an old thread where it was discussed to make the global pkg prefix no
longer configurable and have it always derive from OCTAVE_HOME, avoiding the
need to rebuild the cache when that path changes:

I would propose that we revive that idea to resolve this bug, and make it so
that the global cache only needs to be built once, or when a new pkg is
installed, and changing OCTAVE_HOME when Octave moves to a different location
is all that is needed.
