Sorry, font server font path elements are disabled because of an upstream bug
If you really, truly need font server support, I would suggest you use
xorg-server 1.8.2-1 (unfortunately I can't arrange for this to be offered
through setup due to setup limitations, so you'll have to get it from the
cygwin time machine ), or agitate for this upstream bug to be fixed.
