I used the separate GoRC.exe download and it seems OK.
Experimenting, GoRC.exe does not strip with mingw, format not recognised.
But anyway now I can use fb 1.06 32 bits.
Thank you.

Thanks dodicat. I get the same message for strip.exe from mingw-org. I investigated a little. The strip.exe (binutils, older) with mingw-org doesn't recognize the GoRC.exe format, but strip.exe (binutils, newer) from mingw-w64 (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions) does. The author describes gorc.exe as a 64/32 bit exe, and I don't know what that means, but depending on which tool chain used, strip.exe does rewrite the file, and I am using different toolchains for each kind of fbc package.

I've fixed this for next release in the release build script by adding GoRC.exe to that package after the other exe's are stripped, so doesn't get modified.
