(Another) question about Qt creator licenses.

Let's say I want to use Qt Creator for making closed source application without Qt libraries, for commercial purposes. That could be simple c program that just prints stuff, which I'd sell for 99 dollars. On the license page it says "Must provide a relinking mechanism for Qt libraries". Does that mean I can't use the open source version of Creator as my application would not have qt libraries and I must buy the commercial license? As it may seem obvious, I don't know how qt libraries work exactly but I think my question is still valid. Thanks.
On the license page it says "Must provide a relinking mechanism for Qt libraries"
Which page exactly?
You can use QtCreator for closed source projects. The only problem is if you modify QtCreator and distribute that modified version, but this is not what you want to do, right?
Another example: you can use GCC for closed source projects even though it is GPL. It is just a tool which you do not distribute and which is not part of your project.
