Don't do that!  Ocaml binaries cannot be stripped since these are
mixed mode binaries.

See above.

Yes and no, no workaround, well there are always two possibilities to
compile ocaml code, build the slow pure binary or the faster native
ocaml binary.  Since I'm not an OCaml expert, maybe the Cygwin OCaml
maintainer or the upstream LablGTK maintainer can tell us more?
