Here's a reworked patch (against rebase-4.2.0-1) that enforces mutual 
exclusivity between -T and -E; extra files given on the command line are 
processed with the list and the description has been altered to hopefully be 
more clear in that respect.  This change also forces that only a single such 
option is present on the command line instead of silently using the last one 

Typical use of this new option would be:

cygport $p compile
find $p -name \*.dll -o -name \*.so | rebase -sE -
cygport $p test

Recording the ephemeral files in the database properly would likely require 
a new database format and more support functions, so I'm skipping that for 
now, I also don't see any need for that at the moment.
