You can either do that or install one of the ports of X11 to cygwin32.
You should find all of them on
ftp://ftp.franken.de/pub/win32/develop/gnuwin32/cygwin32/porters . The
X11R6.3 from Arlindo da Silva seems to be the most complete one to me
while the X11R6.4 from Sergey Okhapkin is the mos up-to-date.

Additionally you will need a native Win32 X11 server for running your
program after it's compiled. There are two free implementations on
www.starnet.com (XWin32) and www.microimages.com (MI/X).
bye, Michael
