       I have successfully made Tk on this and another windows computer in the
Cygwin environment in the past (and it was also version 800.024).  I
have since upgraded cygwin (including gcc to(GCC) 3.3.1 (cygming
special) from 3.2.something).

Does anybody have any recent experience in building perlTk on cygwin?

       Another question is how can I use the binaries on my computer from my
successful Tk build on another cygwin install?

It's obviously not finding (lib|cyg)X11 (it's not even on the link line).
Do you have XFree86-prog package installed?  XFree86-bin?

I do and it's in my path:
