I'm confused; maybe we both are. What are you trying to do? You can
get the latest stable Octave sources from or one of the GNU mirrors. should also still work. I guess that building them on
Cygwin should be as simple as unpacking and doing configure&make,
provided you have the prerequisities.
If you have problems with compiling OctaveForge packages, you should
probably report the issue on the OctaveForge mailing list.

It's hard to tell what can cause your problem, especially as nobody
seems to be able to reproduce it. So, if you wish it to be
investigated further, you need to carry out more experiments and tell
us the results.
