It's not that simple.  Note that in your case this had nothing to do
with the perl/tk package - it was cygz.dll that needed rebasing.

If there was an easy way for this to happen automatically, it would have
been done that way a long time ago.  I don't think anyone really likes
the notion of having to run rebaseall manually but it's a multi-faceted
problem.  There are past threads that detail all the reasons for this if
you're interested.
