Dear VTK Users.

I am trying to build TCL Wrapping under cygwin (VTK4.0, WinNT4.0, cygwin,
gcc 2.95.3-5, Tcl/Tk 8.0).
After building *.a libraries and vtk.exe, the vtk.exe has ca. 18 MB.
However, vtk.exe does not run, see messages below:

Administrator at TE_LAPTOP /cygdrive/c/VTK/Graphics/Testing/Tcl

$ /cygdrive/c/VTK/bin/vtk disk.tcl
::vtk::load_component: vtkCommonTCL could not be found.

I think, I should also build shared libs, but then the linker complains
about missing Tcl stubs.

My questions:
1) Is it possible to run (under cygwin) VTK Tcl examples without producing
DLLs? Which way?
2) How to obtain libtclstub80.a and libtkstub80.a libraries?

Thank you very much in advance,
Piotr Kozaczewski
