Disscussion seem to be started from the foloowing points

And also

In 2.1.xx series, I have built octave by myself using gcc-3.2 from 
special web site.  For octave 2.9.xx, the gcc-3.2 is no longer to be 
used.  So I have built gcc-3.4.4 --disable-sjlj-expceptions

 James R. Phillips was the maintaner of the  octave-2.1.73 on cygwin. 
However there are noresponses for my binary upload to on my web.
Perhaps he is not working as a maintainer.
At that time, the Octave only be built using the cygwin on the windows.
So I suppose that he knows the problem but build it by the normally 
prepared compiler.
