That's exactly why I introduced the "--oblivious" option several years
ago.  It'll let you rebase a set of DLL while benefitting from the
rebase database, but not recording them there, so if you later install
them properly there will be no collision.  I needed this for testing
newly compiled Perl XS modules, but you seem to have a similar use case.
