Mingw build problem for TCL

sorry if this isn't the correct place. I have previously used the 
mingw-* packages to create a Windows compile of tcl8.6.0, but currently 
it doesn't work. It compiles without error as far as I can see, but when 
you try to run the executable (tclsh8.6.0.exe) it returns immediately 
with code 127.
(PS ... I have tried it with the current mingw/msys system directly, and 
that compiles OK.)
