The information regarding
brew --config brew doctor brew install -v <formula name> 2>&1
is available in the following gist - Gist

The brew doctor says everything is good and I also have the latest Xcode and CLT installed as per the brew --config info mentioned in the Gist above.

The problem is related to the TeX binary as the error message says:
You don't have a working TeX binary (tex) installed anywhere in your PATH, and texi2dvi cannot proceed without one. If you want to use this script, you'll need to install TeX (if you don't have it) or change your PATH or TEX environment variable (if you do). See the --help output for more details.

But, I do have TeX binary installed on my Mac OS X 10.9 mavericks and I confirmed that by:
bash-3.2$ which tex /usr/texbin/tex

I also added the TeX binary path to the PATH environment variable by appending it to the /etc/paths file and also verified the same by doing:
bash-3.2$ echo $PATH /Users/silverSpoon/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p194/bin:/Users/silverSpoon/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p194@global/bin:/Users/silverSpoon/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p194/bin:/Users/silverSpoon/.rvm/bin:/usr/local/heroku/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/texbin:/opt/X11/bin

There is an entry /usr/texbin at the end of the PATH variable.

What am I missing?
Let me know if you need more information. Thanks in advance. :)

Please test #723 as we're completely revising the octave formula.

/usr/texbin may not be on Homebrew's path?! I'm tentatively closing this as we're trying to favor testing the formula in #723 and use it to replace the current one. Thanks.
