No, they don't need a double dash. That is also in the documentation I
pointed out... he is wrong in that comment about -e.

Without the flags the application builds, the main difference is what I
pointed out: you get messages saying the linker guessed what function
you wanted to link. I haven't researched the full implication of the 3
parameters deleted, actually I added one more: --as-needed .
One thing is what those guys did in the repository commit, one didn't
know what he was doing, only that some builds (including building Qt)
worked in his environment which is Windows with g++ from MinGW and the
other mingw64. The other approved the change also not knowing, not
really reviewing, and probably doesn't care, which is the real problem.
This is off-topic for this list, the problem is with Nokia, I'm just
seeing it now because it was released with the latest version of Qt, and
I thought that "unsupported" was contributed by this project.
