I have no expertise in X11, and can use it (I don't normally, it seems much slower than quartz) the most technical thing I have done is install R installation using the installer from r.research.att.com but if it helps you in a moment of desparation!

at 438 MB I guess you could argue that you have to pay, especially if you are not on broadband. But you don't have to pay anything to Apple for the minor digit upgrades ( ie 10.6.2 -> 10.6.3)
