Trouble installing control toolbox

Hi - I'm very new to Octave. I'm trying to run it from within Cygwin (freshly installed) on a 64 bit Windows 7 machine.

I installed Octave as well as octave-forge when installing Cygwin, using the Cywgin installer. This did not seem to give me the controls toolbox as I expected (at least as far as I can tell), as running commands like bode() would give me error messages about undefined functions.

So, I downloaded the control toolbox from here: and attempted to install it. See below:

octave:9> pkg install control-2.4.1.tar.gz
warning: creating installation directory /home/Michael/octave
/bin/sh: make: command not found
'make' returned the following error:
error: called from `pkg>configure_make' in file /usr/share/octave/3.6.2/m/pkg/pk                  g.m near line 1385, column 9
error: called from:
error:   /usr/share/octave/3.6.2/m/pkg/pkg.m at line 827, column 5
error:   /usr/share/octave/3.6.2/m/pkg/pkg.m at line 383, column 9

Can anybody suggest to me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks so much!!
