postgresql upgrade is blocked by a rebase/objcopy issue


also patching cygport to use
  "--long-section-names enable"  together with "--add-gnu-debuglink"

one of the dll "dict_snowball-dll" causes rebase to segfault

I am not sure if it is objcopy creating a bugged debuglink dll,
or it is rebase incorrectly choking on it.

As workaround, I can release 9.2.2 without debug symbols,
but I will prefer that we understand ,possibly solve,
the issue before.
