Ok I did comment that

Here the end of the compilation and the error with these 4 lines 
g++ -fexceptions -Wl,-s -mthreads -Wl -Wl,-subsystem,windows -o

Why one looks in plugins-src/TWLuaPlugin/release unless that what is 
searched is created *before* looking!
The subfolder /release doesn't exist before compilation.

But commenting the 4 lines, the compilation is OK and it is then 
possible to go to plugins-src/TWLuaPlugin and plugins-src/TWPythonPlugin 
and use qmake and mingw32-make; the compilations go alright and the 
system works.
