I've never used MiKTeX.  I've always use the teTeX package from
Cygwin.  Last night I built octave-2.1.71 on a current Cygwin system
using only Cygwin tools with the commands

 ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/octave/2.1.71 --enable-shared --disable-static
 make install

and had no problems.

Is the octave.texi file empty or missing?  Does your MiKTeX
installation work for other files?
