I would first use the compiler of the Qt SDK, otherwise you eventually would have to compile Qt with this compiler.
Only when this works on your Windows you should start to build for the build server.

Using MinGW minimizes the requirements on the Windows side, but maybe  Qt5 requires Windows > XP.

Static, because then there would be only one dll for the netcdf support (the plugin)
