It then uses GNU binutils as (called asw.exe for win32) assembler to create the object
file instead of the internal object writer

But the code differences (except jmp labels and absolute offsets) shouldn't be that much
when you compare a dissamble (objdumpw.exe --disassemble) of the 2 object files.
