I will leave it to others to address the above.

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

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
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.
