It means, X server is unable to find /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 directory
which contains rgb.txt and fonts subdirectory.

If you are using cygwin 1.1.1, the XWIN should be installed
in X:\cygwin\usr\X11R6  (X is your disk letter)

if you mount points are:

c:\cygwin\usr /usr

then everthing related to X goes in C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6
