I've run into this problem before, only slightly different. I

d.mon stop=x0

./configure --without-gd --without-odbc --without-fftw --without-postgres --
without-opengl --x-includes=/usr/X11R6/include --x-libraries=/usr/X11R6/lib

GRASS is now configured for i686-pc-cygwin

  Readline support:           no

 and then make...

I then ran make install and tried to run grass 5.0.3. When I attempted to
start a graphics window, I got the following:

GRASS:~ > d.mon start=x0
No socket to connect to for monitor <x0>.
Problem selecting x0. Will try once more
No socket to connect to for monitor <x0>.

The graphics window works when I run from an X Window session, but I would
like to only run the generic build (not the X version, since this will be
run on a Windoze XP machine and having two window managers running is a bit
unsightly, but...)

Am I configuring the build correctly?
