Thank you, Ken for working on this.

After trying the install, I get stopped in the postinstall for texlive-collection-basic.
/usr/bin/fmtutil cannot be run because Cwd.dll (and others) try to load at a conflicting
address.  I have tried a full rebase multiple times, and I have tried uninstalling packages
and doing a full rebase, to no avail.

Suggestions, folks?  There is nothing obvious to me in cygcheck output, but I can
share it if you think it will help diagnose things ...

Followup: After yet another round of deleting packages, this time optional perl
modules, things started to work.  So I must have run out of address space and
wrapped around or something.  I wonder if it would be possible to have rebase
tell us when this happens?  (My evidence that this was the problem is that the
address of collision when forking was a fairly low address, but the address
now chosen by the full rebase is rather higher, for the same dll.)

Sorry for the extra chatter - but some recent update must have noticeably
increased the total dll space needed (maybe texlive?).

Regards - Eliot
