Thanks Shai.
At the end, I've done it but I had to update cygwin with 
 - In Devel: autoconf, binutils, bison, cvs, dejagnu, flex, gcc,
               g++, g77, gperf, make
 - In Text: tetex, tetex-base
 - In Utils: diff, patch

But now everything does work!

Did you use the --enable-shared flag when configuring octave? make sure
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
