In the future, whenever something like this is missing, try finding it on
<http://cygwin.com/packages/>, and then running "cygcheck -cv" on the
returned package (in this case, "cygcheck -cv XFree86-bin").  This will
report if a package is missing some files (and which files are missing).
Alternatively, you can be proactive and run "cygcheck -c" on your whole
system periodically, and then re-run "cygcheck -cv" on the packages
reported as "Incomplete" [*].
[*] One exception to this is the older versions of the "apache" package,
which are always reported as "Incomplete" due to a non-standard
postinstall procedure.  I believe this is rectified in the newer versions,
