I had that on my next set of commits.  Except for the _XtInherit one, the
fixes were idiot-level ones that I fixed inline, compared to X.Org and
sync'd.  So no credit is owed for those.

However, there's a chunk of ifdef's in config/cf that I intend to use, so
that merits a note.

It's not from "Cygwin/X" tree, but - though of course I
did the proper research to see what the whole story was.  All of this got
my attention since the current cygwin/X packages are broken, as Harold is
well aware.
