Bad for you.  To get it working on Windoze98/95 ask M$ to
stop burrying 16-bit GUI code in the so-called gdi32.dll and
kernel32.dll to disguise the end-users with the notion 
of Windows98/95 being true 32-bit kernel and gdi.

in the contrib directory, x-servers... but for God sake do not even
think of mixing binaries from xc-4-binaries directory to x-servers...
from contrib directory.
