Octave can be built on cygwin too !

Pre-requisites

Once you have setup a system with build tools (gcc, make, ...) repeat a few times this procedure:

  1. start configure and watch for missing dependencies
  2. install either the required tool, either the "devel" version of the missing package

The next step is to tweak a bit the texlive configuration file: (remember cygwin as no sudo command)


   vi /usr/share/texmf-dist/web2c
   

Change

   TEXMFLOCAL = $TEXMFROOT/texmf-site

into

   TEXMFLOCAL = $TEXMFROOT/texmf-site:$TEXMFROOT/texmf

Then run

   mktexlsr
    

Source-Compilation

Before building Octave from scratch on a Mac OS X platform you need to install several GNU programs and libraries that are not shipped with your Mac. This descriptio111n will guide you through the procedure of GNUifying your Mac OS X step by step, so that you are then be able to configure, compile, install and run the Octave program.
