Good question! When I planned the work I dind't considered this option,
because on the wiki it was (it is) suggested to use ActiveTcl;
Probably I should reconsider to build Tcl/Tk from source using MinGW, and
then rebuild GRASS...
Moritz, what do you think about?

AFAIK there are some problems for GRASS with 8.5, I read it in the list in
the last weeks.

Why use ActiveTcl? The regular, GPL'd Tcl compiles without any problems and
can be distributed freely. Would also be interesting to know how
8.5 is working on Win.

Yes, please. The sh interpreter is vastly superior to cmd.exe.
