I can't seem to get to install
on my system:

$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-4.0 SRC26 1.3.6(0.47/3/2) 2001-12-08 17:02 i686 unknown
$ which gcc
$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-cygwin/2.95.3-5/specs
gcc version 2.95.3-5 (cygwin special)
$ which perl
$ perl -v

This is perl, v5.6.1 built for cygwin-multi

I download Tk800.023 from CPAN.
I had to play around with the 
Makefile and the location of 
the X11 header files.

Once I got past that mess
I got linker errors :(

Has anyone installed
for Cygwin?
