I downloaded and installed
Octave-3.2.3-2_i686-pc-mingw32_gcc-4.4.0_setup.exe, and installed it in a
directory with no spaces.  My previous install was an earlier version, and I
had it installed in a path with spaces (oops).  All seems to be well (for)
now.  You guys rock.

That's the wrong one. It will give you a 3.x.x version of mingw gcc.

If you just want these packages to use them, you can choose them at
installation time.
Just re-install octave and select the packages you want to have installed

The problem that "pkg install" does not work for you is possibly caused by
installing octave into a path that contains spaces (e.g.
c:\program files\octave)
Please install octave into a path without spaces, otherwise package
installation will not work.
