[Reproducible-builds] Changing toolchain defaults to simplify reproducible builds

After a couple of fixes to binutils-mingw-w64 and mingw-w64, the latter
should now be reproducible. This still involves dropping PE timestamps (see
https://wiki.debian.org/ReproducibleBuilds/TimestampsInPEBinaries for
details), which got me wondering whether it would be worth it just to make
--no-insert-timestamps the default in binutils-mingw-w64's ld... That should
fix the timestamp issue for all PE binaries in Debian, without introducing
any regressions that I can think of.

Does that make sense?
