Well, we have to make a standard XFree86-style distribution for now,
regardless of the state of anyone working on using setup.exe to install
Cygwin/XFree86.  See, the documentation won't get re-written over night, so
we'll be providing a standard XFree86 distribution until a setup.exe-based
distribution is working and documented.

That's pretty logical right?

I'm pulling the xf-4_2-branch tree right now.  I might build a distribution
within a couple days.
