I have to agree with the two requests here. Having either a windows tarball or a windows build tools tarball doesn't seem too burdensom, and could even be done automatically at make dist time.

I'm very much in favor of that since we can't ship this binary in
Debian. We'd have to delete it from the tarball and repack it with every
release which is quite cumbersome. If these tools could be shipped in a
separate tarball that would be great!
