This has been fixed, at least the original example worked.  Closing report.

This issue might be FIXED in Octave 4.2.0.

I can do the following without any problems:

pkg install -forge struct

p = "optim-1.5.2.tar.gz" ;  % depends on struct package

url = ["http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/octave/Octave%20Forge%20Packages/Individual%20Package%20Releases/" p "?r=http%3A%2F%2Foctave.sourceforge.net%2Fpackages.php&ts=1415623662&use_mirror=heanet"]

urlwrite(url, p) ;

pkg build "."  "optim-1.5.2.tar.gz"

Building packages with dependencies does not work. E.g.:

pkg install -forge general
pkg list

p = "geometry-1.7.0.tar.gz" ;

url = ["http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/octave/Octave%20Forge%20Packages/Individual%20Package%20Releases/" p "?r=http%3A%2F%2Foctave.sourceforge.net%2Fpackages.php&ts=1415623662&use_mirror=heanet"]

urlwrite(url, p) ;

pkg("build", "/tmp", p) ;


Package Name  | Version | Installation directory
     general  |   1.3.4 | /home/me/octave/general-1.3.4
error: the following dependencies were unsatisfied:
   geometry needs general >= 1.3.0
