Well, major difference here is - as you already mentioned - the fact
that mingw-w64 provides some helper-routines (as described by msdn) in
ws2_32 and some other libraries. Also the uuid-library is a bit
bigger. Also we provide some of the intrinsic-function as
inline-code, which might be responsible for some size-improvment - but
better optimization - you notice. Btw have you checked size with
debugging-information, or without?
