I just removed and reinstalled the whole distribution. I still get the exact same errors.

    Are you using the "MSI Installer" version of that distro ? According to this page, it's SHA1 digest should be:
    e67728ddd89777815271ac7416cff32653d387bf
    Is that what you have ? (I get that SHA1 digest for the distro that I just downloaded - so that part looks fine to me.)
    If you get a different SHA1 digest for the distro you downloaded then, either you've grabbed a different distro, or you've got a corrupted distro.

    When I install that distro and run:
    objdump -t C:/strawberry/perl/lib/CORE/libperl516.a >dump.txt
    I get no errors ... so I'm thinking that you must be running a different objdump. Where is it coming from ? You need to run the objdump that's in C:/strawberry/c/bin ... so try:
    C:/strawberry/c/bin/objdump -t C:/strawberry/perl/lib/CORE/libperl516. +a >dump.txt
    Does that make any difference for you ?
    Finally, the various digests I get for libperl516.a are:
    Enter the filename (full path): C:/strawberry/perl/lib/CORE/libperl516 +.a MD5: e53826b93afd80de2e44038da93e63ba SHA1: 68737f9536907c5a37833b94e26685a10d9c5ce0 SHA256: c66d4ad43a583304b800e22966de0ab5baa6000ccb956643559b8e76f62e84 +dc
    Does that match what you get ? (No need to check all 3 - any one will do.)

    Cheers,

      SHA1 was correct. When I checked where objdump was, however, I found it in two places: my separate MSYS installation, and the strawberry one. Once I removed all of the MINGW stuff from the path, strawberry no longer had any trouble compiling XS stuff. Maybe I had a wrong version of MINGW or something; either way, I'm happy it works now. Thanks!
        Maybe I had a wrong version of MINGW

        It's probably a 32-bit version of MinGW - which will still work fine on your 64-bit system, btw.
        But there are incompatibilities between the 32-bit binaries it builds/uses and the 64-bit binaries that Strawberry builds/uses - and it's one or more of those incompatibilities that has bitten you in this instance.

        I'm pleased it's finally working. Thank you for the feedback.

        Cheers,
        Rob
