Note that the current Cygwin-hosted eCos hosts tools require a _cygwin_
build of tcl84.dll. A native windows build of this DLL is not suitable.

The Cygwin project is now distributing libtcl8.5.dll rather than tcl84.dll.

I will generate new snapshot builds of the eCos host tools which use
libtcl8.5.dll and announce to this list.
