You've stuck your finger right on a sore spot.
tcltk is a *native MS windowing* port of tk (tcl is GUI-agnostic; tk is
the important bit wrt display technology). The X11/Xlib.h file that
cygwin's tk wants is NOT the one distributed by cygwin-xfree. Neither
will tk work with the X11/Xlib.h file distributed with xpm-nox.
Both tk and xpm-nox have their own "fake" Xlib.h files -- xpm-nox ships
it in /usr/local/xpm-nox/X11/xlib.h. cygwin's tk doesn't ship its
version of that file at all.
Unpack it somewhere so that you can explicitly use
but be careful not to clobber the "real" X11/Xlib.h
