So it's a true native build dynamically linked against MSVCRT right? If yes that's cool.

I personally prefer MinGW over Cygwin and Qt is built with MinGW too for Windows(there are MSVC builds also but they aren't used that much for open source projects usually) so we might consider it in the second term of this GSoC. What toolchain did you use (msys, cygwin-cross, etc..)?
