I don't think it is very likely. I know that I'm not working on
anything like that.
I do agree that Octave does not work as well as it could on Windows
NT/95 systems and that the installation process is not trivial. There
are several possibilities for improving the situation. Someone could
step forward and volunteer to maintain the Windows NT/95 port of
Octave, or someone could provide funding for me to do the work (I am
not a Windows NT/95 expert, nor do I have the desire to become one
just for fun).

The answer to this question is similar to the answer to the first. I
could help merge changes for a MacOS port if someone else does the
work and is willing and capable of making a clean set of changes. But
I'm not going to spend a lot of time on it myself unless someone is
willing to provide funding specifically for the project.
