Nevertheless, PostgreSQL's autoconf does a very good job of getting
things right for Cygwin with the exception of the need to configure
--with-tclconfig.  Essentially all of my patch deals with supplying
missing libraries and the DLLIMPORT name clash problem.  Note that I am
just supplying libraries that were already determined by the autoconf

BTW, what is "Makefile/Makefile.tcldefs"?

The need for the above has been obviated by my patch.  IMO, it makes
more sense to polish my patch and get it accepted, than run manual links
over and over again.  Now that Cygwin has upgraded to a more modern
Tcl/Tk, shouldn't we take advantage of this?
