This includes:

tcltrf (source)
 * win/msvcrt.dll

This is part of Windows. I don't expect Debian has been granted 
permission to distribute it. :)

I wonder how many of these DLLs and EXEs link together code licensed 
under the GPL with versions of the Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime that does 
not ship with Windows (and hence qualify for the 'major parts of the 
operating system' exception)?

«i686-w64-mingw32-objdump -p foo.dll | grep 'DLL Name'» will output a 
list of dependant DLLs. The bad ones to look for match at least «msvc[pr]
[0-9]+.dll» or «mfc[0-9]+.dll» (case-insensitively). I'd do this myself, 
but I don't have the hard drive space nor the bandwidth here, sorry.
