there is a little bit more to it, but not too much.
If you read the win32-packager sources you'll see that it sets up the
QT environment variables first:
source /c/mythv/qt4_env.sh   (for QT4 based builds)
source /c/mythtv/qt3_env.sh   (for QT4 based builds)

If you are in any doubt at to the steps required, just revies the code
that is in the win32-packager.   it's not too hard, and is well
commented as to how it works.
