X11 include files with Cygwin V1.0

Ummmm, I do not know why 6 files from X11R5 are in
/usr/i686-cygwin/icnlude/X11. Yes they should not be there, I
agree. X11R5 header files are practically of no use for development
You are right linking against X11R6 libs and using X11R5 would
efinitely creat bad executables. Beside there are only 6 files,
which are by no means a complete set of X11R5 header files.
