I do not have X installed with my current Cygwin so I cant help with 
x11drv and gdi atm. This problem with --enable-auto-import goes away in 
ntdll when doing "./configure--disable-win16" with the latest cvs 
(Thanks Alexandre). If I can get time to get X reinstalled under Cygwin 
I will give gdi and x11drv a shot tonight.
