tcl/tk failure using -mno-cygwin

Has anyone managed to successfully build programs that make tk/tcl calls,
using the -mno-cygwin linking? When I try to do so, I just get general
protection faults in kernel32.dll. (Programs built and linked w/o
-mno-cygwin, i.e., by default with cygwin libraries, work just fine.) I
am using the latest full release of cygwin.
  I assume this is because the tcl/tk libs shipped with cygwin were built
with cygwin headers/libs, and fail when linked with mingw32 objects? Has
anyone managed to compile tcl/tk (preferably 8.0.5 or 8.1, but doesn't
matter that much) using -mno-cygwin? Would you be willing to share
binaries or patches?
