Have you looked at Octave. It's essentially a gpl'd pacakge which executes
most Matlab m files and allows for externally compiled programs to be used.
It's included in the SuSE distribution. I haven't used it much, but am
planning to start. My sense is that as long as you don't need the graphical
interface functionality of matlab, it should do anything matlab does. There
are probably some limitations on grapphic functions as well, but has the b
basic set of matlab type plotting functions and it may be adequate for your
use. The web page is at: http://www.che.wisc.edu/octave/
