I installed the last w32api and mingw64-i686 packages and (installed
and) compiled the 20131124 snapshot with no problem, under both XP and
Seven. In addition, i didn’t discover any issue with the snapshot itself.

Thankyou for all.

Note. For the record, previous mingw64-i686-headers was needed for
Tcl 8.6.1, not for cygwin.
