When building latest Tcl/Tk 8.6.10 on Cygwin and Win32, I noted that
on mingw64-i686 the built executables crash immediately. Reverting
mingw64-i686-binutils from version 2.34-1 back to version
2.13.1.be46fa23-1 makes the build work again.

So, it looks like binutils for mingw64 (32-bit only) has the same
problem as the Cygwin-32 version.

Would it be possible to re-build mingw64-i686-binutils with
the same patch?
