I see the same thing. It *claims* to be a shell script
(starts with #!/bin/sh) but looks to me to be something
different. Line 10 is the first real line of script code,
and its first token is *package*, which suggests to me
that this is really tcl/tk or something, that I am not
familiar with how to code ...
It is tcl/tk. The command 'exec wish' is missing in the new release:
$ diff -u gitk.prev gitk | head

# Tcl ignores the next line -*- tcl -*- \
-argv0=`cygpath --windows --absolute "$0"`; \

Workaround: run gitk as:
$ wish /usr/bin/gitk
