That was it, I had it in "Program Files."  Octave has a browse button on the
installer, did not see any warnings about this.  So much for that bad habit
of following Microsoft convention !

Since a reinstall was called for, I went ahead and permitted 4.2.0 to run. 
"pkg list" now finds quite a lot of them (apparently that space also fooled
the loader), all the ones I had noticed in subfolders from the first install
but were previously inaccessible.  Now "pkg load" finds its target, loads
control, and the toolbox is working.

So, THANKS for providing expert interpretation of this error message.  I
certainly had no clue.
