It seems something is adding 5M or more to the normal
size of the programs

$ du -sh *.exe
5.2M    addr2line.exe
5.2M    ar.exe
5.8M    as.exe
5.2M    c++filt.exe
5.2M    coffdump.exe
5.2M    dlltool.exe
48K     dllwrap.exe
40K     elfedit.exe
5.2M    gprof.exe
8.9M    ld.bfd.exe
5.2M    nm.exe
5.3M    objcopy.exe
18M     objdump.exe
5.2M    ranlib.exe
740K    readelf.exe
5.2M    size.exe
5.2M    srconv.exe
5.2M    strings.exe
5.3M    strip.exe
5.2M    sysdump.exe
5.2M    windmc.exe
5.3M    windres.exe

and I will bet it is the same that pushed debian to have some shared lib


to avoid data duplication between the binaries
