You need to do two things:

1) Create the file xc/config/cf/host.def.  Put the following line in the
#define UseCygIPC 1

2) Follow the instructions for compilation in the Cygwin/XFree86
Contributor's Guide.

I don't recall if we decided that the Shm support was stable or not...
you'll find out though, I am sure.
