Qt 5.1.1 still fat with dependencies.

  • I was waiting for version 5.1 to answer the need to have a build which didn't have so much bloat due to OpenGL. It seems that is still the case. WIth version 4.8.4 you need only include QtCore4, QtGui4 at a minimum depending on what you were building. Migrating the same source to version 5.1, the list goes through the roof.

    Is it thus the case that I still need to do a custom build? Has anyone out there refined the steps for a shared library build? I compared version 4.8.4 on VS2010 tool chain with version 5.1.1 using VS2012 tool chain.
