$ cygcheck g.region
shows that the fftw3 DLL couldn't be found.
$ cygcheck i.pca
shows that the jasper (JPEG 2000) DLL couldn't be found.
So restart the cygwin installer & install those two packages (they can
be found in the Libs section) and all modules work. (including NVIZ,
which isn't surprising, but it always is)
so fftw3 and jasper need to make it into setup.ini. I suppose jasper
belongs in gdal's entry?
any reason you used such an old GDAL version?

In the TclTk startup, if you go into the [Browse] file picker for
DATABASE and ../ your way back to root dir from $HOME, the top dir is
shown as //., so when you pick /usr/local/share/grassdata/ it keeps
the extra '^/'. If you edit that out by hand back on the main GUI
startup screen it goes back to normal and everything works.
other observations to follow..
