No, I don't think this is related.  The CPU here is Core i7, so the
instruction set shouldn't be a problem.

I think the executables were linked against msvcrt.dll that came from
Vista or later, and these do have strnlen; the one that comes with XP

This issue was discussed during MinGW runtime development, but I guess
it wasn't resolved in a way that is reliable enough, or maybe some
other similar issue is at work.

I really hope a fixed distribution could be uploaded soon.
