I just tried this one in development mxe-octave with octave 3.7.7 on my XP 64 machine and it installed optim 1.2.2 ok with just some warnings on continuation markers being depreciated.

I also had installed from forge:
general 1.3.2
misc 1.2.0
struct 1.0.10

_disna_optim_ should be linked against the same lapack library as is used by Octave. That's why it is essential for the build that mkoctfile -p returns the correct flags. This does not seem to be the case with your mingw Octave installation. I remember that this problem has occured before. I'd say this is a bug in mingw-Octave, not in optim.

So this bug-report should be closed or moved, except this should be the right category also for mingw-Octave (I don't know). Could someone with permissions please decide on this.

If there should be new reasons to assign this bug to optim, the bug could be re-opened.
