Error running Xterm in CYGWIN and MI/X

Hi,

I am not very familiar with X windows and CYGWIN.  I just installed CYGWIN
version B20.1 and MI/X server.  I ran xs and xterm, and I get following
error message.

<<<<
Warning: locale not supported by C library, locale unchanged
Warning: locale not supported by Xlib, locale set to C
Warning: X locale modifiers not supported, using default
Failed to open input method
xterm:  unable to find usable termcap entry.
>>>>

My questions are:
1. Can I set the locale ?  If so, how?  I live in Colorado, USA.  Colorado
is in Mountain time zone.  Is this what the error message mean?

2. What do I need to do to make xterm work?  Do I need to add special
termcap?

Following is the list of my environmental variables:
