I actually went to X.org and got latest release of X.
IMHO, cygwin documentation sucks. Same goes for the setup tool and packaging. At least DLL still works. If maintainers (are there such individuals?) want to know how these things can be done, I suggest looking at FreeBSD ports.
Building an entire environment from scratch is way easier. UWIN that I used several years ago, is nice but not free for commercial use. If you do not need to bother with commercial use I suggest trying UWIN ASAP.
