Good point.

I'm willing to do the right thing, but that is going to take longer given
the ramp up necessary for me learn about binutils' configury/make, bfd,
etc.  However, I would like to get a rebase solution into setup.exe ASAP.
Is a two prong approach acceptable?  In the short term, add rebase to
winsup/utils, integrate directly into setup.exe, etc.  In the long term,
add rebase to binutils, integrate with ld, etc.
