I don't know if they are, but for some development releases they are
I guess you still have the original XWin.exe installed by Xinstall.sh.
So XF86Config is not used. If you're using a test release, then use the
switch XkbDisable in XF86Config.
But the Xkb problem should not cause the other error message.

Please try starting XWin with the config switch -engine 16
If it does not work, replace the 16 by 8, 4, 2 and 1 and see if anything

Xdm does not work properly on Windows.

What's this? you request status information and direct the output to
/dev/null? That's strange.
Please keep responses to the mailing list. It will help _you_ that more
people can follow the troubleshooting and may give hints.
