Hi everybody,

i read through the mailing lists but i'm still not sure if it's possible
to do the following and if it works: building Tcl/Tk on NT with the X
libraries so that the windows of a wish script on NT could be sent to a
remote X server.

We built an application with the Windows version of Tcl/Tk from
Scriptics and now some people would like to run it on their Unix
workstation. The application can't be ported to Unix because it's linked
with C code using an imaging library available only on NT.

I installed the full distribution of Cygwin, but i have not seen the X
libraries. Is there a binary version of the libraries available
somewhere, or is it relatively easing to build them from the sources?
