I also have successfully built -r Version_2_6_7_pre gcl on windows.

I tried to build gcl-tk on windows from Version_2_6_7_pre by doing
the following:

1) Download and install TclTk (tcltk-8.4.1-1.exe) from

   By default TclConfig.sh and friends end up in /mingw/lib

2) In gcl ./configure --enable-tclconfig=/mingw/lib

3) make

The make proceeds normally until I see:

if [ -d "" ] ; then \
        cd gcl-tk && make ; \
else \
        echo "gcl-tk not made..missing include or lib" ; \
gcl-tk not made..missing include or lib


The Makefile stanza is:

        if [ -d "$(TK_CONFIG_PREFIX)" ] ; then \
                cd gcl-tk && $(MAKE) ; \
        else \
                echo "gcl-tk not made..missing include or lib" ; \


Doing make -d TK_CONFIG_PREFIX=/mingw/lib doesn't get me much

So it seems that although ./configure finds TclConfig.sh and
the necessary variables, for some reason TK_CONFIG_PREFIX is
not set. Is this a problem with configure?

Mike, can you give me some hints on how you actually build
gcl-tk on Windows? What am I doing wrong? Earlier I had also
downloaded and build tcl 8.3.4 on MSYS but I got the same
results when building GCL. Now tcl 8.4 seems to be the preferred
version on Windows.

In the mean time, I will do some experiments with Camm's
GCL web server code on Windows.
