On [[Windows Installer|MS Windows]] and [[Octave for macOS|macOS]] systems the generic Octave build process described on this page needs some more effort to fulfill the described build dependencies.  Please read [[Windows Installer]] and [[Octave for macOS]] for information how to build Octave for the respective systems.
      
Dependencies marked with <span style="background:lightgreen">green background</span> are '''required''' for building Octave.  All other tools and libraries are recommended/optional, but very useful features (like the GUI, plotting, etc.) are likely to be disabled.
