g++ executables / bash window

I've been using FreeBSD, then installed GNU-Win32B19 on NT4.
I noticed that g++ executables are very big when compiled with
GNU-Win32, that is 330Kb for a simple `cout << "Hello world!";' while
the C version is less than 20Kb.
Under FreeBSD which runs GNU g++ too, there is no such a differnce.

Is there a compiler option that reduces executable size to its minimum?

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"gnu-win32-request@cygnus.com" with one line of text: "help".
