I'm moving this from the thread:
octave 3.4.0 and octave-forge-20110226 for cygwin released

In summary, I have attempted to install the control-2.1.55 package after
downloading, which failed.

  At Marco's suggestion, I have attempted moving the .gz package to /usr/src,
changed the permissions to 666 and attempted the install with -nomanual and
-verbose switches, which yielded the following output, which is exactly the
same as the original errors, but interleaved with what I presume are
scripted commands being echoed to the console:

octave:2>  pkg install -noauto -verbose /usr/src/control-2.1.55.tar.gz
make: *** /tmp/oct-2899b8.1/control/src: No such file or directory.  Stop.
mkdir (/tmp/oct-2899b8.1)
untar (/usr/src/control-2.1.55.tar.gz, /tmp/oct-2899b8.1)

have you checked tmp is accessible and control-2.1.55.tar.gz is not damaged ?

ls -l /tmp
tar -tjf control-2.1.55.tar.gz

'make' returned the following error:
error: called from `pkg>configure_make' in file
/usr/share/octave/3.4.2/m/pkg/pkg.m near line 1339, column 9
error: called from:

error:   /usr/share/octave/3.4.2/m/pkg/pkg.m at line 361, column 9

Marco also pointed out that the control-2.1.52 is part of the octave-forge
package, which I installed from the cygwin installer, and checked as
instructed, which appears to show the installation

$ cygcheck -c -d |grep octave
octave                  3.4.2-1
octave-devel            3.4.2-1
octave-doc              3.4.2-1
octave-forge            20110730-1

additionally a "ver" command also shows the presence of control-2.1.52
       combinatorics  |   1.0.9 |
             control  |  2.1.52 | /usr/share/octave/packages/control-2.1.52
      data-smoothing  |   1.2.0 |

however, attempting to access a control function, for example 'tf' gets a
"not found" response.

on cygwin no package is automatically loaded, so
you need the command
  pkg load control

before using the control functions.

See "help pkg"
