I meant some people would like to distribute an executable to systems 
with no Cygwin or Qt installed.

What I am trying to say is to include both the DLL and the static 
library in the package, this way we'll be able to use Qt Designer and 
linking the final executable dynamically or statically.

As it is right now I've been rebuilding Qt from source 2 or 3 times 
because the configure script deletes all objects files when it's run and 
each build took 96 minutes.  Not to mention I had the following bugs:
