Hold on, plugins only work if your application uses dynamic linking but

linking work for Qt (I've done it before).

No, the above is specifically for static Qt builds. It won't work with a shared Qt. See:


This is a mechanism for including static plugins in static builds, because a static Qt will not load plugins at runtime.

What version of mingw-cross shows the problem?  I haven't seen any
problem with translated texts in a static linked application built about
6 weeks ago.

2.21. But even if the bug was application specific (meaning I screwed up), libiconv is not used on Windows; it is used only to detect the current Unix locale. So "-no-iconv" makes sense regardless.
