Yes.  Alternatively, objdump from Binutils.

ldd (using msys2) was most useful as a dependency check.

I suppose I'm still wildly ignorant about what difference it makes, if mingw is either 3.2 or 4.0.
They each have different header files - I know that - and these will be used to interface
to the same MSVCRT.dll.  Assuming they are both bug-free w.r.t. the use I will put them to, 
the .dll's are self-contained with identical interfacing --- there is no mingw-XXX.dll used,
so mix & match w.r.t. mingw versions seems ok (?)

Of course more caution is needed when mixing GCC flavors and versions.  When the threading
is invoked in the library - widget libraries, for instance.
