The mingw-w64 cross compilers have been updated:

* mingw64-i686-gcc-7.3.0-1
* mingw64-x86_64-gcc-7.3.0-1

It is available under the test version.

Using this file:

   $ cat stoi.cpp
   #include <iostream>
   #include <string>
   main() {
     std::string q = "23456";
     std::cout << std::stoi(q) << std::endl;
   }

I have noticed an issue with the Cygwin "x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++" compiler. If I
strip the executable, all is well:

   $ time x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++ -s -static-libstdc++ stoi.cpp; wc -c a.exe
   real    0m0.889s
   845824 a.exe

Same with Msys2:

   # time x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++ -s -static-libstdc++ stoi.cpp; wc -c a.exe
   real    0m0.718s
   835584 a.exe

However if I do not strip the executable, the compile time nearly triples and
the size increases 10 fold:

   $ time x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++ -static-libstdc++ stoi.cpp; wc -c a.exe
   real    0m2.340s
   11695660 a.exe

Compare with Msys2, where the time only increases 17%, and the size only
increases 3 fold:

   # time x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++ -static-libstdc++ stoi.cpp; wc -c a.exe
   real    0m0.842s
   3001138 a.exe
