More info: building Emacs like this:
make USER_LDFLAGS=-s install
produces an already stripped emacs.exe that is 8548352 bytes large.
So this should serve as a stop-gap in case we cannot easily find a
cure for running `strip' on the dumped Emacs.
One further idea to ponder is that the fact we now compile with
DWARF-2 debug info is the reason for the problem with stripping the
dumped Emacs. Can someone please try rebuilding with "-gstabs"
instead of "-gdwarf-2 -g3", and see if that produces an emacs.exe
which can be safely stripped?
