Thanks for the feedback.
As discussed previously, the current build system for windows uses very
old (2003) versions of gcc and mingw. As you have noted, it also uses
tcl 8.4. I am not sure if there is a compatible tcl-8.5 available,
although an update of the tclkit wrapper may be sufficient.
I have an experimental build using recent mingw and gcc, and I hope to
make a test build of 5.27.0 available shortly. I will see if I can use
tcl-8.5 for this release. Unfortunately, I can only get this working
under windows xp - builds under windows 7 (and vista) fail.
