Can't build Plug and Paint

I think I misread the instructions for deploying a Windows application...I thought the instructions were saying I needed to build the Plug and Paint application in order to deploy my own application, but after re-reading the directions many times, I think they are just using the Plug and Paint application as an example...sorry about posting the following post needlessly.
I'm trying to deploy a Windows program I built in Qt and from the reading I have done it looks like I need to build the Plug and Paint example project to do this. However, every time I try following the directions I've found online (http://doc.qt.digia.com/4.7-snapshot/deployment-windows.html) I get an error that says "ld.exe: cannot find -lpnp_basictools".
In the plugandpaint\plugins folder there are 3 files:
I've tried editing the basictools.pro file to change this line:
CONFIG += plugin static
CONFIG += plugin
which results in a pnp_basictools.dll being built when I build the plug and paint plugins, but I still get the error.
Any ideas how to resolve this? I'm doing this on an XP box using mingw32-make.
