No, I mean the standard source distribution.
Actually there still is a problem with cygwin tcl/tk, which _don't_ compile for cygwin target without heavy tweaking. So the tcl/tk distribution for cygwin is in fact a mingwin distribution. Thus, usual applications that would compile with a tcl or tk dll, can't correctly detect it's presence on a cygwin platform, so autoconf doesn't do its job OTF. But in this case there is a remedy.
After specifying --with-tcl and --with-tclconfig=/lib to configure, the dllwrap line that fails for interfaces/libpgtcl must be manually run with " -ltcl80 -L/lib" options added, and the pgtcl.dll shows up. There are also 2 errors about Tcl_CreateFileHandler and Tcl_DeleteFileHandler functions, in pgtclId.c, which I usually comment out.
