Cannot Start XFree version 4.4.0

I have cygwin installed, and now I am installing XFree 4.4.0.

The istallation script ran with no errors.

After the installation completes, the instructions direct me to configure 
XFree by running:

XFree86 -configure

But I cannot find an executable by this name.
I do not have the xf86config nor the anxf86cfg files on my file system either.

I tried to run startx under /usr/X11R6/bin, but I get the following popup 
error from xinit.exe:

Unable to locate Component

"The application has failed to start because cygcygipc-2.dll was not found. Re-
installing the application may fix the problem."

I tried re-installing several times, and I still do not have cygcygipc-2.dll.
The script runs without error each time. 

Any ideas?
