Great. It is always a good sign that others can reproduce the same

Yeah, I build most of my Windows stuff on Debian these days. The build
environment is sane; the executables are small and they appear to work
on all Windows machines I've tested. Only problem is that MSVS is still
needed when porting to some embedded Windows variant; MinGW only
supports X86 as far as I recall. Also, MinGW64 isn't in Debian yet, but
I haven't seen a significant demand for Windows 64-bit binaries so far.
