I would have preferred if you posted to the Cygwin mailing list instead
of sending private email.

At the moment no.  However, I was able to reproduce the above.  I will
enhance rebase to indicated why it thinks a DLL is not rebaseable when
the verbose option is specified.

Although this change may produce better diagnostics, it may not solve
your problem.  Note that some DLLs are just not rebaseable -- for
example, tclpip84.dll.
