To avoid conflicts with the impending release of new cygwin-x packages 
(which will use the modular x.org sources and install into /usr NOT 
/usr/X11R6/ ), I've updated the xpm-nox package.

xpm-nox provides a version of the Xpm image format library compiled to 
NOT require the use of an X server.  However, it has also contained a 
DLL and utility that may conflict with the new x.org binaries' location. 
So, various name changes and removals...

Changes from 4.2.0-4
o /usr/bin/cxpm.exe          --> /usr/bin/cxpm-noX.exe
o /usr/share/man/man1/cxpm.1 --> /usr/share/man/man1/cxpm-noX.1.gz
o /usr/bin/sxpm.exe REMOVED [1]
o /usr/share/man/man1/sxpm.1 REMOVED [1]
o /usr/bin/cygXpm-X4.dll REMOVED [2]

[1] sxpm never had any business in xpm-nox.  It is an X program, and the 
x.org packages will provide this tool (and, presumably, its man page)

[2] This DLL has been retained for 5 years, with no known users.  It is 
an X-based compilation of the libXpm code (so it really didn't belong in 
xpm-nox, either).  The "real" libXpm DLL is distributed in the x.org 
packages (current and future) under a different name ['cygXpm-4.dll' vs 
'cygXpm-X4.dll'].  It is the x.org version, cygXpm-4.dll, that all known 
Xpm clients on cygwin use.  After five years of keeping this 
compatibility library around, I'm now removing it.

If removing this DLL causes a problem -- recompile your app to use the 
official X-based libXpm DLL.
