There's autorebase, which is called from setup, but the method is not
entirely foolproof.  If you installed exactly once and then don't start
setup again unless new packages are available, you're ok, but if you
start setup a couple of times to install more packages you forgot in
the first run, then autorebase won't be triggered and the DLLs installed
in the subsequent setup runs won't be rebased.  A manual rebaseall 
will fix that.
