RE: Re: PerlTk under Cygwin?

Don't know if you have solved this yet,  but there is a special build
that does indeed work.  
It is a version of tk800.025 with a patch.  I can't find it right now
but I found it with a bit of digging about 2 weeks ago.  There was a
tk800.024 for native win  and tk804.xx for X11.  they both seem to work
after the requesit playing with rebase....

I believe I got it from sourceforge:
Cygwin port maintained by: Yaakov Selkowitz

I don't think this has worked since Cygwin went from XOrg to XFree, or
versa, which ever it was, as I used to be able to build it, but no
could, right after the switch.
