Ok, some more notes on the topic.

I managed to go thrue the installation again, in WinUAE. I followed the X11R5 installation instructions on amix.failsure and it works but it's an awful lot of work as it supposes you write the X11R5 tar to tape first and then the script copies the files from there. It's doable in WinUAE but tiresome. Probably it would be easy to make it a simple archive as the one in vintagebytes' site is, but I won't try that with my lowly Unix skills.

I am still not sure if the copying of the Xol directory was required, but at least editing .xinitrc and replacing twm with xset fp+ /usr/X11R5/lib/X11/fonts/Xol and olwsm does get it going.

Now I can run xinit on my root account but on user account it doesn't work (complains on not finding the display session, seems to run the wrong xinit version due to paths being wrong).
