Right, but I was holding out (some) hope/fear that maybe there was
something about the libraries that 'triggered' this -- but as you and
Dave both point out, it has *solely* to do with the new mingw32-runtime
lib.  I can't explain why, two days ago, I got an empty .tls section
even using that mingw32-runtime lib.

But, I'm getting a non-empty one now, on both machines, both with and
without the use of my patch/the-new-crypto-libs.

So, the upx thing is an entirely separate issue, and shouldn't hold up
consideration of this patch.
