Hello all,

after building xorg-server 1.20.0 without errors, the XWin binary crashes at startup due to a buffer overflow. XWin 1.20.0 from Cygwin repos works as expected.

- Freshly installed Win7 x86_64 VM
- Cygwin x86_64
- Dependencies installed as described in https://x.cygwin.com/docs/cg/prog-build-prerequisites.html, plus xcb-composite-devel
- Applied the following patches to my Cygwin environment, otherwise the build would fail:
- Downloaded patched xorg-server 1.20.0-2 sources as described in https://x.cygwin.com/docs/cg/prog-obtaining-source.html, "Obtaining via Cygwin setup"

   $ cygport --64 xorg-server.cygport prep
   $ cygport --64 xorg-server.cygport compile

XWin binary
is then executed.

what about doing also "install package" and properly install the
resulting binary ?
