Ah, iirc jom was reorganized. I am not sure whether I already updated
the patches yet, for the time being we need to stay with the adapted
mingw32-make :-(.

If we can make it work again over the weekend, I could try to get the
patches upstreams on monday.
my jom-mingw clone on gitorious is really outdated, so I'd recommend
that we start with a fresh one.

@Christian: I know you definitely know more than me about building Qt,
could you try and update the qt-static package?
As we do have multiple Qt tools a static Qt would be needed to provide
us with static binaries for these tools (at the moment: automoc,
kdewin-packager, kdewin-installer and jom).
