That all looks perfectly normal to me, and exactly what I see on my own
systems. But your explicit mention of using a non-X terminal suggested
another possible reason for rebase failure: the cygXt-6.dll is very
likely to be in-use, and thus busy as far as Windows is concerned, if
you're running an X server and/or xterms etc. at the same time you're
trying to rebase that DLL.
Try closing all xterms, background X apps, and the X server and any X
window manager you may be running. All processes related to X, in other
words. Then retry the rebase of cygXt-6.dll.
