There are a  2 patches that have been in mxe-octave for a while now in order to 
compile under mingw
I believe JWE created (or knows why or the purpose they were made) so can 
answer better than me on  their history and whether they could even be rolled 
into the current sources. [1][2]

One is to gnulib, so may be fixed when a newer version is pulled in. [2]

I also have added another that I first had to do to get it to compile under 
mingw- 5.0  (cross build) so also occurs under msys2, which is also using mingw 
5.0 and gets confused about c++ and c linkage of functions in gnulib time.h vs 
ctime [3]
