Correct.  The native rxvt was heavily patched, and there was nobody 
interested in porting it to 64-bit or generally supporting it. 
Therefore, it was replaced with the ordinary X-based rxvt.  The default 
terminal emulator, mintty, fills that role and then some, and is what 
you should be using instead if you don't want X11.
