The "all" in rebaseall means all DLLs installed by Cygwin's setup.exe.
Since your Python build has not been installed yet, its DLLs have not
been rebased.

Normally, rebasing /usr/bin/*.dll is sufficient.  However, sometimes
it's not.  If you are interested in helping with the Cygwin hunt, then I
can show you how to properly rebase the Python CVS build too.  Let me
know.  Otherwise, I'm back to hunt...
