The "official" builds are stripped to external .debug files. If you
don't care about debug information, you can just run strip on
executables and DLLs, or you could just move the debug info to
separate files with these two commands (run them from the root of
install prefix):

  find \( -iname '*.dll' -or -iname '*.exe' -or -iname '*.pyd' \) -type f -exec x86_64-w64-mingw32-objcopy -v --only-keep-debug '{}' '{}'.debug \;
  find \( -iname '*.dll' -or -iname '*.exe' -or -iname '*.pyd' \) -type f -exec x86_64-w64-mingw32-objcopy -v --add-gnu-debuglink='{}'.debug '{}' --strip-unneeded \;
