Okay, I see. It takes a cygwin expert to spot that one.
No way I could tell that those two should match somehow.

It was never the idea to break the installation :)
But, evidently, I did botch my bundle, so to speak.

Rebase is fine now; all I get is this harmless (?) message:

/usr/lib/perl5/5.14/i686-cygwin-threads-64int/CORE/cygperl5_14_2.dll: skipped because nonexistent.

Nonexistent is not the whole truth: it's just a dangling symlink.
Sibling cygperl5_14.dll is fine
Is that a bug or my doing?

Thanks for your (plural, including Marco) most excellent help.
