I would suggest starting with XFree86-bin, since this contains all the
libraries, right? Once the libraries are released, other people can
start compiling XFree86 packages for 1.5.x (or their own X apps). The
actual apps can come along piecemeal after that, I think.
I don't think X apps compiled with 1.5.1 against the old 1.3.x X
libraries will work.
But, I am not a Cygwin expert (IANACE), so hopefully others on this list
will correct me if needed.
