By leveraging off of the following patch:

and installing the required headers.

BTW, due to these discussions, I have realized the above patch needs to
be enhanced to prevent accidentally picking up the real X, tk headers.

I should have been more clear.  I was reacting to the "cyg" not the lack
of a period.  For example, in 8.0 we had libtcl80.a, in 8.3 now we have
libcygtk83.a.  This name change is another reason why the above patch
needs to be reworked.

OK.  I just wanted to check before I submitted my patch to the Python
patch collector.
