respectively. How do I install these libs (if they are not already

oct-files with: mkoctfile -lpthread -lfftw ...

Install .lib files into <octave>\lib and headers into
<octave>\include. Binaries (.dll and .exe) should be
installed into <octave>\bin.

FFTW import library (fftw3.lib) is included with the binary
package; linking with -lfftw3 should be enough. If you also
need the header, just grab it from the FFTW windows
binary package (it's not included in octave distribution).
Copying the fftw3.h file worked fine.
pthread is not part of octave package. You should be able
to link against it by installing the various files as mentioned
above. Note however that this binary package is probably
not compiled with MSVC8, so you might suffer some
problems at run-time. If this happens, you might try to
recompile pthreads with MSVC8, although I don't know if
it is supported by pthreads sources.
It is a VC version of the pthread lib available at the link mentioned above -
I'm not sure which version of VC the used though. I will try and copy the files
as you suggested.

I have another issue as well.  I use (the C99)

    #include <complex.h>

in some C-files that I call from the oct C++ files (it's in C since the code is shared
with some C mex-files for Matlab). MSVC8 don't seem to support complex.h (I also tried
MSVC 9.0 without success). Doesn't MSVC conform to iso C99 or am I missing some
development libs for MSVC?

Thanks for the help!
