Yes, forgot to include inplace_edit.pl in the tarball created by 'make dist'.  I fixed that here https://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/fbc2730a653b.

Update to the latest tip and make a new dist-lzip to get a complete tarball.

With the recent tip (hg id be7ba25bb5bf), I see the following error when trying to cross-build for Windows:

Can't open perl script "/home/osboxes/Documents/Repositories/Octave/mxe-octave-3/tmp-default-octave/octave-5.0.0/build-aux/inplace_edit.pl": No such file or directory
Makefile:27262: recipe for target 'doc/interpreter/octave.html/.octave-html-stamp' failed

The mentioned file indeed is not in the source ball I created with:

make all dist-lzip -j3 DIST_IGNORE_HG_STATE=1

To be honest I don't know what to make out of this error.
