[1.7] Building the X server

To help anyone who might like to debug their own problems with the new 1.6 X server, I've made a git repo available on which contains the X.Org X server 1.6 branch with the 70 or so additional patches which were applied to produce the Cygwin/X (20090401) release.

A quick summary of how to build it: (This is covered in much more detail in
the Contributor's Guide [1])

# install the build prerequisites
cd <directory-with-setup.exe>
./setup.exe -q -P autoconf,automake,binutils,bison,bzip2,diffutils,fileutils,\
# read [1] to understand why we need to do this... :)
rm /usr/lib/
rm /usr/lib/libXFont.dll.a
# fetch source from git repository
cd <directory-to-put-source>
git clone git://
cd xserver
git checkout -b cygwin-patches-1.6 origin/cygwin-patches-1.6
# build
./ -prefix=/usr --with-log-dir=/var/log --disable-xv
