Notice carefully that I did not saying anything about GCC 6.3.0 in this thread.

you wrote nothing at all.
So it is difficult to understand what is your exact issue as in
the past you blamed the compiler.
Error report should be clear and complete;
only links to other place are not enough.

Also notice that you are incorrectly assuming that I am using GCC 6.3.0. The
binutils in question does not work with either 5.4.0 nor 6.3.0.

As you shifted the target from g++ to binutils

I did this because binutils is the problem, not GCC:

- http://github.com/Martchus/tageditor/issues/23

I saw the comment from Martchus
"Note that when I had been using mingw-w64-binutils 2.28 (before recent update to 2.29) I didn't encounter this issue. I never tried 2.28.1."

So it does not seem an issue specif of 2.28

do you have evidence that 2.29 will solve the issue ?

It seems that both 2.28 and 2.29 both work, so instead of trying to
troubleshoot we should probably just build a newer version and release that as


Have you built it ? Or are you only asking Jon to dedicate his time ?

Last time I had issue with cygwin binutils 2.25, I built the 2.28.90
and I verified that was solving the issue I saw.
I was not just expecting Jon to debug it alone.
