I see the following in the ChangeLog:

2000-06-19  John Dallaway  <jld@redhat.com>
        * common/win32/memmap.cpp:

        Modify add_relative_sections_to_list() to skip sections
        which have already been added and track whether sections
        should be skipped.

This was committed a fortnight after the tools were put up, so it
won't be in those.

The config tool is open source... feel free to rebuild it, although you
need VC++ :-/. I'll see if I can find time to build one that's usable
publically but don't hold your breath :-/.
