W11 is included with the rxvt package from cygwin. This is why I say:

Since the necessary library is included, why REQUIRE a command line option to specify its location? Weird.

It is, of course, entirely possible that your existing /usr/X11R6 could do the job - but since W11 comes with rxvt, it might be
tempting fate to try and use something else!
