Building an unstripped windows binary is easy - in principle.

But yes it will be huge, last time I made one it was around 990 MB.
In addition, you can't make an installer, merely a zipdist, as the size of
all files will probably exceed NSIS' 2 GB limit (it did in my case).
Excluding the OF packages may help a little bit but not enough to avoid the
NSIS limits.
