This is a information sharing post.

I did a rebaseall yesterday and then could not to build Emacs from cvs.
The src/bootstrap-emacs.exe would hang in _cygtls.  I left it there all
night to see if it was just slow, but this morning it was still the same.
I then modified the src/Makefile and changed:

LD=$(CC) -Wl,--image-base,0x20000000


LD=$(CC) -Wl,--enable-auto-image-base

This change allowed me to build Emacs from cvs.  It even launches okay.
I'll have to use it some to get an idea if it is more or less unstable
(since cvs Emacs cygwin is kinda unstable anyway).
