You can't (easily).  Please don't try.  It hurts both projects when
people deliberately drop back to old versions instead of helping to
fix/reporting bugs.  

Also, if you are building XEmacs from source, make sure you are using
the *windows* branch of 21.4.6.  Both windows-native and cygwin versions
of XEmacs are built from a (frequently synchronized) branch off the main
XEmacs development trunk.

FWIW, I just installed the latest cygwin-XEmacs (21.4.6, precompiled,
see Andy's announcement *yesterday*).  It seems to work okay on
cygwin-1.3.6 for the basic stuff I am doing; normal text editing, etc. 
Subprocesses *may* be problematic -- but I'm not sure; I've seen mixed
