I am still lost, maybe I misunderstood something.
First I had to install: "PCRE library" (on ubuntu 20.04: "pcre2-utils")
because of this message:
configure: error: to build Octave, you must have the PCRE library and header files installed

After "./bootstrap" I stayed inside the root-dir of the repository clone (for me: '~/hg/mxe-octave')
and gave the command:

|nice -n 19 make ||all 7z-dist ||JOBS=||8||hg-octave-dist 

Don't include the "all 7z-dist" targets here. Building the octave source distribution from the hg archive must be done as a separate step. Try

  make JOBS=8 hg-octave-dist hg-octave-branch=stable

If that is successful, then you can do

  make all 7z-dist JOBS=8

to build Octave for Windows with all the packages. Use whatever number of jobs makes sense for your hardware.
