I was thinking more along the lines of compiling Tcl/Tk from scratch on 
MinGW and including our own binaries, or including the 8.4.1 MinGW 
binaries that are available somewhere on the net.

Does it all run OK? Things to check: Display modules not able to find the 
libfreetype-6.dll, but moving it around a bit to whereever they seemed to 
be looking fixed that. Also GDAL and GRASS seemed to be looking for the 
libz dll under different names - AFAICR GRASS was libz.dll.1.2.3 and GDAL 
libz.dll.1.2.3.dll! But these issues might have been resolved when you put 
everything together in the GRASS library directory; I didn't really 
investigate too much what was causing them.
