 > Have you checked about the deterministic output of the Windows bundles
 after the switch to the newer  binutils version? That has been the main
 reason for why an update did not happen earlier (see: comment:1).

 It seems it is not deterministic. I did two builds using branch
 `boklm/bug_16472_v3`, and have some differences in the Windows builds. I
 will attach the output of diffoscope on `tor-win32-`.
