There may be some possible ways using another build system, but we haven't 
checked yet:  
1. Using a cygwin host enviroment it will be possible using gcc3 -mno-cygwin 
if qt supports the cygwin path style. This support is currently missing 

2. Using the mingw. We haven't checked. The problem may be using a win32 path 
style and a gnu make tool, which 

3. Using the free visualc toolkit: It seems to be compatible to msvc, but it 
does not have nmake nor it provides the win32 api (windows.h and friends). It 
may be possible to use the w32api package from the mingw distribution, but as 
I said, we haven't tried. 

People are invited to implement and submit additional compiler support.
