Yes, and I offered one year ago to fix it, but my suggestions were
ignored. Please see our e-mail exchange from last year. Basically you
just need to add me to the Sourceforge project. Meanwhile I have also
got an account (tormod) on invent.kde.org so I can commit the
necessary build fixes there if you give me access. I'd like to help,
but as you probably as well, I have not lots of time for this nor
infinite patience so I need to be able to contribute efficiently.

Yes, all optional libs. And thanks to the MXE binary packages, without
having to compile all of Qt etc. With these packages downloaded and
installed, I can cross-build Kst from scratch in 5 minutes.

The previous automatic builds for Windows were also cross-build using
MinGW, so no changes there. I won't look into MSVC builds. I would be
happy to kick the old build into working again. On longer term I hope
we can sort out the MXE issues properly, get all dependencies
"upstream" in MXE, and maybe use this for the automated builds.
