First, Please address the questions to Cygwin mailing list.

Second,  the servers are not functional, yet.  Though, X-servers
compiled binaries are in the tar-balls, but important pieces,
such as DirectX and devices drivers are missing.

The pre-alpha-xfree binaries are intended for some developers
who are working on this project.  It saves them 5 hours of compilation
time, to test their drivers they are writing for cygwin-xfree.

Third, there is no link between X11R6.4-Cygwin-B20.1.tar.gz and Xfree
code/binaries.  You can not grap my X11R6.4 libraries from my Geocities
or Webjump URLs and get xfree code/binaries from Sourceware, then
try to mix and make a monster out of it.  It will not work.  The
Cygwin/Xfree code and binaries are X11R6.3 based (XFRee86 3.3.5)
and X11R6.4 is X11R6.4 from X Consortium, with no XFree86 
code in it.
