I'm pretty sure I've used MinGW to generate executables that small,
although that was probably 16 years ago.
Try to pass -s to GCC and don't use -g to get rid of symbol tables and
debugging information. Most of the time TCC generates more code than GCC,
especially when GCC is called with -Os.
The linker of MinGW might enforce different section alignments than TCC.
But that should add less than 10 kB of padding, regardless of the code
