There is a command line flag to force octave into interactive mode.
For some reason, rxvt on msys makes octave act like it is operating
without a terminal.

I found the source-function, and used it. But this is not practical usage, since Octave should handle it's own m-files and oct-files all by it self. Which file/class handles this behaviour? I guess it's the kpathsea-files for path, but which class/files handles the loading of m-files and oct-files?
I'll  take one more look at the kpathsea-files?
BTW, which classes/files are using kpathsea functionality?

I don't get the octave-prompt, when I start Octave from MinGW (MSYS) prompt, but I get it, when I start Octave from cmd (dos). MSYS package works pretty much in the same way as Cygwin. Actually it looks like a mini-Cygwin, since it is mounting partition in the same way as Cygwin does. Just take a look:

address@hidden /d/Octave/OctaveBin/bin
$ mount
C:\DOCUME~1\oleha\LOCALS~1\Temp on /tmp type user (binmode,noumount)
D:\msys\1.0\bin on /usr/bin type user (binmode,cygexec,noumount)
D:\msys\1.0\bin on /bin type user (binmode,cygexec,noumount)
D:\msys\1.0 on / type user (binmode,noumount)
D:\msys\1.0 on /usr type user (binmode,noumount)
d:\MinGW on /mingw type user (binmode)
a: on /a type user (binmode,noumount)
c: on /c type user (binmode,noumount)
d: on /d type user (binmode,noumount)
e: on /e type user (binmode,noumount)

I have compiled Octave-2.1.64 with MinGW (gcc-3.2.3), and it starts up.

However, the path's is not correct, since functions like lu, qr, plot are not found by Octave.
I guess this is a kpathsea related error?

How can I solve this?

You have to source the associate .m file. For example:
