Hi Moritz,

I'm afraid I don't have much more to offer than a few hints.

As far as I know, the Qt build system does not generate .pc files covering 
static plugins, and plugins are not mentioned in other .pc files as 
dependencies.. Qt does have generated .prl files which play a similar role for 
qmake so you might be able to extract some of the information you need from 

This is a general problem for anyone using static Qt libraries without qmake, 
not specific to MXE. I suppose the "correct" solution would be a change to Qt's 
build system to make it generate these .pc files. I don't know how feasible 
that is. It would be a bit of shame to do lot of work to fix this in MXE if it 
could be fixed in the Qt build system itself.
