Did you use the --enable-shared flag when configuring octave? make sure you follow all the below steps to install octave:

tar xzf octave-2.1.67.tar.gz
cd octave-2.1.67
./configure --enable-shared
make && make install

wait a few hours .....

after that I was able to install octave-forge with no problems

I’ve installed Octave 2.1.67 with Cygwin under Windows XP. Now, I would need octave-forge as well but I can’t manage to install it. I’ve downloaded the 2004.11.16 version and tried to configure it under cygwin but I get the following error:

Checking for mkoctfile… mkoctfile

/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-cygwin/3.3.3/../../../../i686-pc-cygwin/bin/ld: cannot find –loctinterp

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

configure: error: Could not run mkoctfile

whereas mkoctfile is installed.

Anyone has already installed octave-forge separately from octave with Windows ?
