I am aware of that but cygcheck uses an output format different from ldd. I have written a program to recursively parse library dependencies and bring them into correct order for linking.

It would be nice to use the same input for my program in Linux and Windows.

The build of Qt5Core.dll was done with Visual Studio, not with cygwin/gcc.
