It occurred to me to mention to the OP that the
mingw package (minimal Gnu for Windows is what I think
it stands for) is a lighter weight version of the gcc
stuff for Windows. It does not try to "fake" a Linux
environment to the extent that cygwin does, so it is
simpler and smaller, as I understand it. (I am less
familiar with mingw than with cygwin.) Still, there
may be something there more suited to your needs.
Seeing as I had mingw installed, I built the same little
programs with it. Stripped .exe files turned out to be
6144 bytes long. ldd showed a long list of dlls that
would be dynamically linked at run time, but they are
all Windows dlls -- no cygwin or "custom" mingw ones.
So, maybe this is more what you meant originally.
