Are not "Could not open..." ERRORS enough for you?
It means, you do not have c:\usr\lib\X11\rgb.txt and
c:\usr\lib\X11\font and who knows what else you
might be missing or may have installed X-servers-v-1.0
in some weird path instead of C:\usr.
As you wrote "forget about compiling" if you could not
make sense of errors language, then you would really
waste more time if you even think of compiling X. X is
a compilicated code... "Do not try at home unless
you know what you want to do..."
