* 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.
* By default, packages will be built one at a time, but you may use <code>make JOBS=4</code> (choose a number other than 4 that is appropriate for your system) to build each package in parallel. You may also combine this with the <code>-j</code> option for Make to build more than one package at a time, but be careful as using <code>make -j4 JOBS=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. Beware as the total Octave distribution will be > 2 GB, the max. size for an NSIS installer.Your only options are to make zip-dist or tar-dist installers.
* Include gdb in the installer by running <code>make gdb</code> before making the <code>nsis-installer</code> target.
