I realize that last sentence was unclear. What I meant was, FixImage()
should check if the DLL is 64bit, and if so then *do nothing*, and
return without error.  OTOH, for 32bit DLLs, FixImage() should retain
its current behavior of returning WITH error if anything goes wrong.

At least, until rebase gains the ability to act on 64bit DLLs.
