I ran this new script and it completed on the first try (!).

However, I think this line:

     cp -p /usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/bin/*.dll .

maybe too broad. It copies a lot of dlls with the same names as some of 
the ones being built (pthread, Qt, libjpeg etc.) and the subsequent "ln 
-s" statements fail. The end result is that the dlls that are shipped 
with mingw are used instead of the ones just built.
