c:\mingw\bin\strip.exe: ffmpeg.exe: File format not recognized

Now this is easy to avoid with --disable-strip, but it's a loose thread.

I could understand that strip be impossible in mingw, and that they 
would supply a bin/strip doing nothing, but that's not the case here. On 
what files is mingw/bin/strip supposed to work?
