FWIW, Qt and Qt Creator both built out of the box using Ruben's mingw
w64 4.6.3 build, and the python based debugging helpers all seems to
be working when debugging in Qt Creator, which is great!

Gdb takes a long time to set breakpoints at the start of a session,
though.  I've seen this with other versions of mingw/gdb, too, so it's
probably not a mingw w64 specific problem, but it keeps me from using
mingw w64 as my main toolchain on Windows.  For now I'm sticking with
the mingw toolchain from the Qt sdk.
