[Interest] Help with Qt 5.6.1-1 32-bit build errors

Bingo!  That appears to have been the problem.  Just like the report, I too 
was using jom, and when I changed my expert-knowledge build script to force 
nmake for static builds, it breezed through the 32-bit static release build 
with no problems.  Why this wasn't encountered with 64-bit static I don't 
know, but it certainly appears to have been the exact problem preventing the 
32-bit static build from completing.

Thanks so much, Mike.  :)
