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 \;
