I will leave it to others to address the above.

Anyway, I started to debug the PL/Tcl problem.  These are my
observations:

1. pltcl.dll is successfully loaded by postgres
2. pltcl.dll is successfully loading cygtcl83.dll (which is not
   surprising since the Windows loader does this)
3. pltcl.dll is failing in pltcl_init_all() (which is very early in the
   initialization process)
4. Tcl_CreateInterp() succeeds (so at least one Tcl function seems to
   work)
5. Tcl_CreateSlave() fails (unfortunately, I could not determine why
   with a limited amount of effort)

I will leave it to those who have the interest to continue 
debugging this problem.
