on cygwin-1.5 the requirement for octave are:
cygwin lapack gnuplot less libreadline6 texinfo libfftw3_3 libhdf5_0 

so libhdf5_0 and libreadline6 should be already there.
Or are you speaking about the devel packages ?

On octave-devel I forgot to bump the requirement from 
"gcc-g++ gcc-g77" to  "gcc4-g++ gcc4-fortran"

but if you are developing, you should know  
that you need the compiler :-))

On cygwin-1.7 I removed the "gcc-g++ gcc-g77" requirement
at all. So please be aware of it.
