As pointed out in my other post, etc.so is not in the list of the output
of rebase -si, so grepping for it doesn't return anything.

Well, it isn't on my machine. I don't know why. Maybe I screwed something
up - it just surprises me that I have the same problems with a fresh
(complete) cygwin install with ruby 1.8.7 from the cygwin packages.
Michael's script works like a charm for me, including custom installs of
ruby 1.9, so I'm happy.
Thanks for the help!
