I have updated the version of rebase to 2.4-1.  The tarballs should be
available on a Cygwin mirror near you shortly.

The notable changes (all to rebaseall) since the previous release are:

    * Convert from bash to ash script.
    * Add support to verify that only ash processes are running or exit.
    * Add rebasing of .so files too.
    * Add suffix option (i.e., -s) to support rebasing of DLLs with
      non-standard extensions.

      exiting with zero (patch from Axel Naumann).

is usable by all Cygwin user (regardless of platform) on all DLLs
(regardless of stripping).
