Hi Corbin,

Why is the option presented?  What value does it have if not supported?

You would have to ask the tool's author that question. :-)

That said, what I really want is to have an existing executable load to a
higher/different address than default.  Do you know of a way to do that?

Not really no. :-( If you could relink your executable then you should be able to change the start address of the text segment. But if all you have is an existing, static, executable then you are probably out of luck. If the executable was compiled to be position independent then you might be able to persuade the loader to change the start address, but this is OS specific, and outside of my range of expertise. If the executable was compiled to run at a fixed address however then you are out of options. Sorry.
