Anything that is packaged will be rebased by the _autorebase postinstall
script (by default just DLL, but you can also arrange for some PE falgs
to be set on executables).  Currently the handful of exceptions needed
within Cygwin are hard-coded into the rebase_pkg function, so you'll
have to patch that.
