objcopy built for mingw64 silently refuses to handle
files larger 2GB. The reason - mingw/mingw64 headers
(sys/stat.h) don't have _FILE_OFFSET_BITS magic.
The patch adding negative file size check is attached.
Thanks very much for submitting this patch. I have checked it in along
with this changelog entry.

warning message if encountered.
