Octave-2.0.13 + patches to make it work with egcs-1.1.x (see octave-bugs
mailing list or egcs FAQ at builds out of the
box on Cygwin-b20.

I always use Octave as a testsuite, so built the binary a while back.
You can pick up *just* the octave binary for cygwin-b20 from:L

No guarantees that it'll even run.

Cygwin B20 comes with less, so you can discard the one that comes
with Octave. And, you'll need to recompile pipe-gnuplot or whatever
it's called.

fyi, the following hack has worked with lots of people: copy the
cygwin1.dll that comes with Cygwin b20 to cygwinb19.dll in the
same directory.
