OK.  I've followed the wiki article without problems except for the rebase
bit.  I issued the rebase command in /usr/lib/python2.5/lib-dynload;
several DLLs appeared in the ls listing, but when I tried to run the
rebase command, it listed each one and said that it was skipping them
because they were nonexistent.  Is this a problem?  I've run the emerge
--sync and am attempting to emerge system, but it said that it couldn't
find an ebuild to satisfy sys-apps/sed-4.1.4, so I'm trying for sed-4.1.5
which I do have an ebuild for.  I've (theoretically) cleared all packages
in /etc/portage/package.keywords.  Now I see that my sed emerge has failed
because "there are no ebuilds to satisfy "cygwin-binaries/libgettextpo0" 
How do I work around this?
