ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/ shows "gcc4core-1_2_1.wpi" dated 01/20/2012, I
pulled this and installed on my machine, however, prior to doing so noted that
GCC446.DLL was quite the different size then what I had already present:

CURRENT VERSION => 12-16-11 4:01a 131447 124 gcc446.dll
NEW VERSION => 12-16-11 4:01a 25115 0 gcc446.dll

...subsequently with the new version I found out that sound in VLC was at such a
low volume that it was almost un-heard...no matter what volume I adjusted it to,
etc, etc.

Reverting back to my old version brought back the 'proper' audio in VLC.

Hmm, I could bet that the only difference in these two DLLs is the
EXEPACK option.

And I have absolutely no idea what kind of bug in a C runtime could
cause the sound to be nearly quiet without to cause any other trouble.

Either the DOS stub - by default LX executables contain a DOS stub,
although it makes not sense for one cent in case of DLLs - or different
compression options are used. The more appropriate way to compare
executables is to uncompress them and remove the DOS stub. This should
result in binary identical images.
