I've tried various things to no avail.
What is normally put in a Makefile to indicate the location of X_LIBS
for a Cygwin build?

In this case, the culprit is a buggy (or bit-rotted?) configure script for Cygwin. A library search path is not set up so, well, the script ends up with an empty one. As a result, there's no path to put after the -L flag. Since libX11.dll.a is in /usr/lib, you should be able to get away with just eliminating the -L flag completely from the Makefile (I didn't test this).

In general, the best place for X specific questions with Cygwin is the
cygwin-xfree list though.  That's where the most knowledgeable X folks
