I have just upgraded to Octave 6.4 on windows 10.  The commands

pkg install -forge econometrics
pkg install -forge ocl

installs two of the packages that you wish to install.  As Marcus has implied the package optim is installed by the octave installer for windows and does not need to be reinstalled.  Some of the packages that appear to be causing problems are neither on octave forge or on github.

The installer for Octave on Windows already includes some packages out of the box. It is recommended to just load those instead of re-installing them again as a local package.
For a list of the included packages, type `pkg list` in a fresh install of Octave or check this page:

Everything currently installs into version 6.4 on Windows 10 except the below packages, I did it manually. I spent 12 hours staring at the computer, I did it twice. I also logged those that have warnings.


Octave Bug:


error: called from

    configure_make at line 110 column 9

    install at line 196 column 7

    pkg at line 568 column 9
