Good day,

Fresh install of Octave 8.3.0 fails to install Parallel package

pkg install -forge parallel
configure: WARNING: No working fork(), no uname(), or no error.h found....

make: * [Makefile:192: pconnect.o] Error 1
make: Entering directory '/tmp/oct-J4H1lf/parallel-4.0.1/src'
CXX="g++" CXXFLAGS="-g -O2 -IC:/OCTAVE~1.0/mingw64/include -Wno-int-to-pointer-cast -Wno-dep
recated-declarations" C:/OCTAVE~1.0/mingw64/bin/mkoctfile-8.3.0.exe -c pconnect.cc
make: Leaving directory '/tmp/oct-J4H1lf/parallel-4.0.1/src'

error: pkg: error running 'make' for the parallel package
error: called from
    configure_make at line 117 column 9
    install at line 202 column 7
    pkg at line 619 column 9

Any ideas? I have tried the previous patches with no luck or do i need to look for alternatives?
