This might be FIXED now.

At least the official Windows installer for Octave 4.2.0. comes with a (properly compiled) package sockets-1.2.0 preinstalled.

Makefile uses OS variable to determine extra libs required for Windows.

The following patch uses octave-config to determine the host and set libs.
