# <code>hg clone http://hg.octave.org/mxe-octave/</code>
# <code>cd mxe-octave</code>
# Make sure MXE version of all compiler tools are found first in path
## <code>export PATH=$PWD/usr/bin:$PATH</code> # for Bourne shell
## <code>setenv PATH $PWD/usr/bin:$PATH</code> # for C shell
# <code>autoconf</code>
# <code>./configure</code>
* Use <code>make tar-dist</code> or <code>make zip-dist</code> instead of <code>nsis-installer</code> if you want to build just an archive of the files to install on Windows instead of an installer wizard.
* Use By default, packages will be built one at a time, but you may use <code>make JOBS=4</code> if you have (choose a multicore number other than 4 that is appropriate for your system ) to enable build each package in parallel . You may also combine this with the <code>-j</code> option for Make to build. '''Do not''' use more than one package at a time, but be careful as using <code>make -j4JOBS=-4</code>can result in as many as 16 jobs running at once.
* Use <code>./configure --disable-strip-dist-files</code> if you want to keep debug symbols in the installed binaries for debugging on Windows.
* Include gdb in the installer by running <code>make gdb</code> before making the <code>nsis-installer</code> target.
