On cygwin the extra "/" on "//usr" is causing the installation to fail as //
is reserved for network connection. 

    /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 $f /usr/local/share/octave/6.0.0/m/$base; \
  fi \
/usr/bin/mkdir -p '//usr/local/share/octave/6.0.0/doc'
/usr/bin/mkdir: cannot create directory ‘//usr’: Read-only file system
make[3]: *** [Makefile:27331: qthelp-installdir] Error 1

Attached patch to correct the issue.
