One problem seems to be Tcl/Tk using the ActiveState license.
Currently, users need to download and install this individually as
it cannot be bundled and distributed by us.
Did anyone have any luck trying to compile against GPL'd Tcl/Tk?
For me, compilation works fine, but running GRASS from the MSYS
shell just gives me blank Tk windows without any GUI widgets.
