Currently also check if it works with the mingw of the Qt installer.

and see whether it could succeed, but now that it looks rather good, I'd like to rebuild netcdf on top of HDF5 and see 
whether that solves the NetCDF-4 issue under Windows.

There is a Cmake build system for netcdf in \kst\cmake\3rdparty\netcdf which we have to update for HDF5.

It's only needed by the nsis.

Yes, when all is build with this compiler.
