Concept-patch. It removes the .reloc section quite happily.

I don't know whether this will produce faster code - as all the relocation
logic is presumably still in the machinecode. However, it should guarantee
fork() :].

Charles - care to add this to your testing pile? The new
parameter --no-relocate needs to be added to the cygwin .dll link line (for
somewhat obvious reasons :]).
