(I thought this came up before but either I remembered wrong or my Google-foo
is weak today).
These start menu links aren't installed by the xorg-server package, but by the
xinit package.  WFM.

Ah... that worked. Xinit just didn't install by default when I pulled
This is intended.

To do otherwise would lead to an incorrect, circular dependency.  xinit
depends on xorg-server (as you must have a server to start for it to be
useful), but xorg-server does not depend on xinit (as you could start it some
other way, e.g. from the command line)

I guess it would be nice if we had an 'X' virtual package which just depended
on xinit for people who don't read documentation...
Guilty... it's right there on the front page of the cygwin/x web page.
