OK, you convinced me that you are running a post 1.1.8-2 DLL.  Although,
the error message that you are getting would not come from the 2001-03-19
snapshot.  Do you have any stray cygwin1.dll files lying around?  If not,
then I'm out of ideas.

As the README indicates, I'm only configuring currently with --with-CXX
which meets our needs.  I am quite willing to start adding options not
needed by us if they build OOTB.  So, if TCL support builds without fuss
then I will include it.  IIRC, there is not a Cygwin TCL yet.  Hence,
Cygwin PostgreSQL with TCL support may be problematic.

Would you be willing to try configuring --with-tcl?  If so and it builds
OOTB, let me know and I will include it the next time I package a
