Definitely. But actually, I guess it would be sort of promoting,
especially if we provided a notice like this:
"Due to a lack of MSVC-compatible free Fortran compiler for Windows,
in order to build Octave from sources with MSVC, you need a compatible
proprietary Fortran compiler. To avoid that, consider using a free
operating system like GNU, that comes with a free Fortran compiler".

Still, it doesn't solve the main problem.
