I am going to insert my answers after your questions:
> Name of Server-bin:
XGDI.exe, DXWIN32.exe (XVNC.exe is no more relevant. It is renamed to XGDI
after altering most of the vnc code)
XWIN.exe (XWIN.exe is a DirectX based X-server based upon XFree86 4.0
and compiled using Cygwin v 1.1.1 and GCC 2.95.2)
> Required DLL's :
for XDGI and DXWIn32,: /usr/bin/X11
for XWIN.exe (/usr/X11R6/bin)
All the DLLs from /usr/bin/X11 for XGDI and DXWIN32
ALL the DLLs from /usr/X11R6/bin for XWIN

Ummm... -fp should not be needed if for:
XGDI.exe and DXWIN32.exe the fonts are not compressed and installed in
That is where these executable searches for ungzipped fonts.
For XWIN.exe /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts (fonts can be gzipped or ungzipped but
installed in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts)

Yes. See above for directories requirements for fonts.

The XGDI and DXWIN32 are MSVC (Microsoft Visual C/C++) compiled applications
should operate without cygwin1.dll.
XWIN.exe needs Cygwin1.dll from version 1.1.1. and should be installed under
If you install Cygwin in C:\Cygwin and put XFree86 4.0 ports in
and add /usr/X11R6/bin to your PATH,
then it should be almost inegrated into Cygwin ENV. Most of configure
should be able to find the X11R6 libs adn headers in /usr/X11R6
