Attempting to install ltfat package from octave-forge fails:

The issue appears to be that it attempts to use the unix makefile instead of
the mingw one, and doesn't know uses 'cc' instead of gcc, even though
configure found gcc.

Making it run the Makefile_mingwoct also appears to have issues that appear to
be related with setting the SHELL variable to COMSPEC.

Attached is a patch to the package that ensures it uses CC from configure,
only sets SHELL to COMSPEC if SHELL is  not already set.

With this patch, ltfat installs for me using mxe-octave 3.8.2 and hopefully
doesn't break the linux build.
