What I can suggest is to just make the zipdist, and when finished, zip up
the <mxe-octave/dist/octave-&lt;date-time> subdir (there's a complete Octave
installation in there) with max. compression.

Still it will be huge.

Maybe it is possible to just leave Octave itself unstripped (the octave
.exe's + the 3 liboct*.dll's + the .oct files) but do strip Octave's
dependency libraries and support (MingW/MSYS) utilities in bin/? (just a
I really don't know about the other binary files (.a, .la and .o files).
