You didn't install Octave in C:\Program Files, did you? 
Octave itself might still work to a large extent but mkoctfile just won't
work if Octave is installed in any path containing spaces. The only way out
then is to uninstall and the reinstall in a path without spaces.

If you did install Octave properly, you might try to enclose the include
path in double quotes; or copy the include files you need to a subdirectory
w/o spaces (usually the easiest option).
