In answer to your last question, ld -s (strips) an executable incorrectly,
and from what I understand makes it unusable on NT, you keep getting not
owner errors, it also removes exactly the information strip.exe needs to
work, so that using strip.exe on a .exe produced with ld -s fails with
strip.exe (strips) an executable correctly.
