Oh dear. :( (Actually, the pain was minor...)

This was it! I grabbed "rebase" from the archive, and tried to rebase
/bin/cygssl-0.9.7.dll, only to find it was mysteriously write-protected
(555 rights). Changed it to 755, ran

$ rebase -b 0x70000000 /bin/cygssl-0.9.7.dll

and rebase ran without complaint. Ran the Perl script again, and it
worked splendiferously.

I hope this was just something goofy on my machine, rather than some
other problem. Anyway, thanks for the hint, Eric!
