so, I now do get through the configure, but then "make" fails later with a
message that gcc cannot find guitcl.h. Indeed it's not on my system. Is this
supposed to be generated somehow?

In attempt to get through this, I configured:

../../gdb-7.6.50-2/gdb/configure CFLAGS="-g -O0" --without-tcl --without-tk

but that fails with the interesting double-negative error message.

checking for Tcl configuration... configure: error: no directory doesn't

so... I still cannot compile gdb from source on cygwin. Any hints?
