Ok, i've finalized patch and test. I suppose i have a copyright

The new version looks good to me; I built and ran your test without
problems. I do have a suggestion for later, when
--enable-runtime-pseudo-reloc is made the default: in pe-dll.c (around
line 2209) change
printf ("creating runtime pseudo-reloc entry for %s (addend=%d)\n",
if (link_info.pei386_runtime_pseudo_reloc == -1)
info_msg (_("creating runtime pseudo-reloc entry for %s (addend=%d)\n"),
So that if pseudo_reloc is implicitly enabled, print messages for each
psuedo-reloc entry (but not all that other pe_dll_extra_pe_debug stuff).
It's not a warning, but its info the user probably needs to know if he
didn't explicitly say "--enable-runtime-pseudo-reloc".
But that's not important until AFTER pseudo-reloc is made the default.
The business with fork() and -DNO_RUNTIME_PSEUDO_RELOC_SUPPORT stuff in
your example is a bit confusing -- do you have some pending patches to
