To add a little more detail: the reason I didn't just roll a new
binutils and dust my hands together over a job well done is because I
don't like the idea of needing to release a new version of binutils just
to update a constant in the source. I was considering having binutils
look at cygwin1.dll automatically but that is hardly foolproof. I've
finally decided that I'll modify --enable-auto-image-base to accept a
number to use as the base. Then there will always be a workaround when
cygwin1.dll grows in size.
If I was more ambitious, I'd make this a settable option, maybe in a
linker file, but that's something for the future.
