[vtkusers] Compiling VTK with DevCpp and MinGW

Hello David,

Thank you for your reply. I don't need Tcl but I am not really sure how to 
turn this option off. The error that I am getting is generated while CMake 
tries to configure and generate the initial makefiles, before I get the 
option of turning the various wrapping options on or off. Do you know if I 
could turn the Tcl wrapping option off even before cmake tries to configure 
the makefiles?

Thanks a lot,
