Dear Nuno,
On Mac, unlike on Windows, there's a concept of an app bundle.
The Qt shared libraries are copied by macdeployqt to the app bundle as
shared libraries called frameworks.

Thus, shared libraries are coming together with the exe and are easily

Perhaps, at least on Mac you do not need static linking and can rather
safely use the dynamic linking
to the libs within the bundle?


Kind regards,
Robert Iakobashvili
