AFAICT, Chuck and your procedure (and patch) are essentially the same.
The only extra steps that his one had are:

    1. creating some missing symlinks
    2. rebasing the system to prevent the known Cygwin fork() problem

Step 1 may have been obviated by the newer Cygwin Tcl/Tk packages and
Step 2 is likely necessary with your approach too.
