This is actually not the same issue at

In my case, it is caused by latest binutils 2.28 , when using 2.25
everything is fine (even with gcc-6.4)

Maybe we should hold back upgrading binutils , or maybe it need a more
recent version? There seems to be binutils 2.29.1 now

Actually, it is the same issue:

   $ cygcheck -s | grep -e binutils -e gcc
   mingw64-x86_64-binutils            OK
   mingw64-x86_64-gcc-core                 6.3.0-1                OK
   mingw64-x86_64-gcc-g++                  6.3.0-1                OK

   $ cat z.cpp
   #include <iostream>
   main() {
     std::cout << "cout test\n";

   $ x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++ -static -o z z.cpp
   $ ./z
   cout test

So, with both your post and my post, the issue is fixed by not using:

- binutils 2.28.1
- mingw64-x86_64-binutils 2.28.1
- mingw64-i686-binutils 2.28.1

which leaves the last working version:

- binutils 2.25.0
- mingw64-x86_64-binutils 2.25.0
- mingw64-i686-binutils 2.25.0
