Cygwin is fragile. It's a minor miracle it works at all, and a major
miracle it works as well as it does. But it's still fragile and not
easy to work with.

Yes: install Linux in a virtual machine (VirtualBox, VMWare, etc.).
Seriously. It's easier than working with Windows/Cygwin.

I believe so, but that's only a minor part of the problem. The shell
scripts, TCL programs, and makefiles are the tough part.

I don't think so.
You're swimming against a pretty strong current.
It _may_ be possible, in theory, to do what you want -- but it's going
to take _lots_ of time and _lots_ of expertise with both Windows and
Unix command-line stuff.
