I discovered the non-cygwin version in the process of putting up my
web-page (such as it is).
It is downloadable from the mirrors.  I got it from
last night.

I have just tried the non-cygwin version out.  I can get it to connect
to my Linux XDM server using -broadcast, but not with -query (it says
host unknown, despite the fact I can ping the address), and if I try to
specify a fontserver the program crashes.

So I'll stick with the cygwin version for now, but consider moving it to
the non-cygwin version if these problems get fixed, and provided it can
still be run from a network drive without being 'installed'.
