That issue prevented me to do anything interesting for ffmpeg since
then, thinking it was a toolchain issue. I've lost considerable
ffmpeg-time (and actual code) over it.

At the very least, that dependence is needed, yes.

And does it still exist? And for which toolchain/binutils/mingw
runtime/gdb version actually? There are like 3+ versions one can use
(yours, msys2, tdm, msys1, ...)

Thanks for looking into it,
