The reasons for that are

1. We still use gdb as pretty much the only debugger.
2. origins, we used to use all of binutils till about 2007
3. orthogonality, we still use them more on *nix than on non *nix

The reasons for own tools were slowliness, specially in combination with dead-code-elimination, and piping everything through the assembler is more noticable on Windows. Also the state of dead-code-elimination on Windows is still not ideal (*)

(*) I found references from 2016 that mingw still has problems there.

I would like to thank for the "friendly" attention and support for my request, which was given to me here.

I seldom have experiences of this kind.

Hereby I withdraw my request for assistance.
