Recently some work has been done in maintaining a unified build system mxe-octave (a fork of [http://mxe.cc/ MXE]) which anyone can use to produce cross as well as native builds of GNU Octave for Windows and Mac OS X platforms.

# hg clone http://hg.octave.org/mxe-octave/
# cd mxe-octave
# autoconf
# ./configure
# ./mk-dist --installer

make nsis_BUILD=
