Actually, --set-section-flags was shutting up the warnings because I had
forgotten to specify the "alloc" flag for each section.  Changing the command
to use that flag, objcopy still warns me about having allocated sections
that are not in any ELF segment.

I'm beginning to think that there is no way to convert a statically-linked
PECOFF executable to ELF format with recent versions of binutils
under cygwin.
