How do I upgrade Cygwin? Or more specifically my Xfree Package...

I really don't want to do a full reinstall, and the last time I tried a
partial install (KDE) I found that it screwed up unrelated stuff (like
telnet).  It's taken me a while to get my Cygwin running more or less the
way I want it and I don't want to lose all that setup time.

The main thing I want to upgrade is my XFree package.  (BTW, how do I check
what version I have installed?)  I only want to install again to get my
Keyboard working correctly under X.  I checked the /etc/X11/xkb directory
and found no keyboard maps which I now believe I need?  Can I install only
the XFree86-etc package or do I need to reinstall the lot?

Any help much appreciated!
