Oh, and one last thing I forgot. Perhaps the *simplest* compromise, that
allows us to (a) switch the "main" cygwin distribution to use X-based
tcl/tk, AND to have those packages derive from standard upstream sources
rather than gdb's, and (b) retain a working "insight" with minimal
changes to the gdb code base and keep it "native" is this:
a new insight package, compiled with in-tree tcl/tk/itck, but with the
whole schmeil installed into --prefix=/opt/insight as one big package.
No more separate tcltk (except as an empty upgrade helper). Whether the
new package would provide the development files is maintainer's choice,
but at minimum /opt/insight would have
'Course, dropping insight entirely is even simpler.
