I managed to compile 6.2.1 (using DLLs) on the current version of
Cygwin without any detectable problems (other than that I forgot to
use the Unix/X11 Tcl/Tk, so NVIZ doesn't work).

Once I've recompiled with a working version of NVIZ, I can provide the
resulting binary package if someone tells me how to upload it.
