If you need MEX support, try 2.9.10.

You'll have to build the MEX files from source.  I think there is no
way for Octave to handle binary MEX files built for Matlab (as I
recall, they are linked against Matlab libraries).

Octave doesn't have matrix.h (on case-insenstivive filesystems it
conflicts with the Matrix.h header we already have) but you shouldn't
need it anyway, even with Matlab.  So the "#include <matrix.h>" lines
can be removed from the source files.
