Install extra packages in mingw kit

  • Dear

    When installing Qt, you can select to install certain pre-defined kits like: "Desktop Qt <version> MinGW 32-bit".

    I recently faced an issue with one of these MinGW kits: a package was missing. In my case, ccache was missing. Usually in MinGW, you have a shell which allows you to install ccache using the command "pacman -S ccache". The Qt kit however doesn't come with a shell.

    Currently, we have a workaround for the problem just by copying in some files but I would like to know what's the preferred solution for this kind of problems.

    Kind regards
    Pieter Cardoen
