I think a good solution for this problem is to create Cygwin packages
for these various components and Octave.  Then installing Octave on
Windows would be as simple as running the Cygwin setup program,
downloading the components you need, and letting the installer do the
rest.  The packages for the individual parts like ATLAS, FFTW,
etc. could be updated independently of Octave, so it might be easier
to maintain and split the work than a single package that tries to
include everything in one bundle.  Making Cygwin packages is not hard
and can be completely scripted so eventually building a new package
should not be much more difficult than transferring some files and
running a script.  Even so, I do not have the time or interest to do
this myself.  However, if someone else is interested and would like to
help by providing Cygwin packages for Octave, I think I have some
scripts for building the Octave package that could serve as a starting
