    I assume that the QT libraries are definitely part of the LGPL licence, but are the mingw and libgcc ones? They all came out of the QT installation folder...
    http://www.mingw.org/license
    These are the "MinGW runtime".

    The MinGW base runtime package has been placed in the public domain, and is not governed by copyright. This basically means that you can do what you like with the code.
    I couldn't find an explicit list of the dlls that belong to MinGW runtime, but the above licensing statement is pretty flexible!

    mingwm10.dll is the runtime. libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll probably falls under the same licence GCC does (which I think is LGPL) but it's possible it's part of the runtime too.

    Only QtCore4.dll and QtGui4.dll are Qt libraries, and thereof LGPL. The others are from mingw. They have their own license.
    But as far as I know you can deploy them (unchanged) freely without any restrictions.

    EDIT: Uh, there was a second page...
