Yes, been there done that... The problem is not building the dll it's
running it. Since their linker strips the relocations out of the dll then
if the dll is loaded by any proces that happens to not have the preferred
address free then the dll will not load because cannot fixup the address
within the dll. It is a stupid default for Windows but seems to be the
here. The --emit-relocs option seems to be what I need, however, so far
my info indicates that this only works for ELF binaries. Using the
---enable-auto-image-base is a workaround for now because it chooses an
address other than 0x10000000 as the preferred load address but it to
fail if the above happens, however less likely.
Sounds like something that the rebase package could help you with...
