Ports' Tcl/Tk is X11, where the distro's is Win32-based, so the distro
version must still use the latter. Note that there have been
discussions about switching the distro's Tcl/Tk to X11 as well, so
whenever that does happen you'll need that patch.

Right, my last package was built for libncurses9.

Looks fine. One more thing: don't use 2.5.2-ossaudio.patch. Cygwin is
missing /dev/mixer so the module doesn't really work.

No, in this case you'll have to hardcode the documentation version. I
just committed a 2.5.5 .cygport which shows you how this can be done.
