That sounds like a bug.  Can you please send a more detailed bug
report to address@hidden  If it really is a problem
with xargs on gnu-win32 systems, and not a problem with the way the
Octave installation scripts call xargs, can you please submit a bug
report to the gnu-win32 project?

The bin directory should have also contained a shell script called
`octave' that you can run from a bash shell window.  If not, renaming
the binary should work fine as long as you installed Octave in the
default directory tree (i.e., /octave/...).  Otherwise, some
environment variables will need to be set in order for Octave to run
