Hi Ken,
Actually, we have always used the win32api, not the X11 headers. All I did
was simplify the build process
to make it easier for others, avoiding the need to move /usr/include/GL out
of the way.
I'll look at your patch to see if there is a way to compile against X11; I
don't have X11 installed in cygwin so it may take some work.

Re: your glew additions: TeXLive has specifically requested that glew be
explicitly compiled in, using the included glew.c source
instead of the GLEW library.
