We have the following:

    $ fgrep 6L /usr/include/w32api/winerror.h | head -1

A winerror 6 during rebasing usually means the file is open.

It's generally best to successfully rebase all of you DLLs.  I would try
to resolve your cygpcre-0.dll issue.

The problem with "-v" is that error messages will scroll off the screen.
I recommend catching the output and grep-ing through it to make sure all
is really OK.

Maybe your problem is not related to rebasing?
