[texworks] Building TeXworks with recent MinGW

Hi all,

have you had any problem building texworks with recent mingw versions?

Due to problems with my computer I've started again following instructions  


My first problem arrives with MinGW installations, they now have a  
graphical interface and
I don't find packages like gcc-full-*-mingw32-bin-2.tar.lzma. I've  
installed what I thought was
a gcc and g++ compiler but I don't know if this is enough.

After that I've installed KDE and hunspell, both with recent versions.

When I started compiling I couldn't find qmake, I've KDE qmake but not  
MinGW qmake. Do you know if i need it? I think so. Although I've added  
C:\migw\bin to my path there is no qmake there so I suspect it was not  
installed but i don't know where to find it.

Could you help me?

Thank you.

PS: I'll survive with MikTeX-texworks but I'd like to build my own binary.
