There were often questions to the ml, what components of xfree are needed.
But no one build a minimal package.
If you only want to use xwin as xdm login screen, then you only need
Xwin.exe and the cygz.dll. You can use the fonts from your linux machine
by setting up a fontserver. This was also discussed on the ml. So you
might want to check the Mailinglist archives.
