Hi Francisco,

I already answered to your question via the SF contact form. I have no clue 
which octave package you are using, but according to your error message it 
seems your package doesn't include all necessary dependencies to build 
instrument control on windows. Try to install instrument control with a more 
recent octave package for windows (see [1]).

Instrument control for (native) windows currently supports only TCP (client). 
Support for serial port is in progress. If you want serial port and vxi11 now, 
try cygwin [2]. If you want full support, use linux :)

My experience with windows builds is very limited, so I put the octave help 
mailing list in copy. Maybe there's someone who can provide more help.
