 Here i also decided to try this.
 First, WinAPI version of TCL fails to build because of mentioned conflicts.
Additionally, AFAIK Cygwin may dislike when some app directly messes with
 In order to overcome all problems i decided to use a mix. Cygwin version of
TCL + WinAPI version of TK. This way the program will use Cygwin API for
everything except windowing. Should work well.
 Additionally i do it on 64-bit Cygwin. Had to apply some patchwork,
currently it almost builds. I will report results.
 If you are interested in patches, i could approve them here at Samsung for
submission. However, in this case my first wish: could you upgrade TCL and
TK in the repository to the recent version ? Current version is quite not
friendly to 64 bits, as well as exhibits serious bugs (app becomes
inresponsive in certain scenarios, i have a workaround for this).

 P.S. If some users want X11 inferface, while some others want native
interface, may be add configure's option ?

Kind regards,
