Well, it *seems* I got Xorg (1.12 branch) with xf86-video-dummy (0.3.5) 
working, but while xf86-video-nested (git master) will start, clients 
are unable to connect.  I used Alan's conf files and added my own in 

Section "Module"
         Load "fb"
         Load "shadow"
         Disable "kbd"
         Disable "mouse"

This is due to video-dummy requiring libfb, video-nested requiring both 
libfb and libshadow, and libshadow itself requiring libfb.

The attached draft patch is how I built Xorg 1.12 on Cygwin.  Comments?
