The new mingw-builds package is indeed an improvement. So I think we should really switch to


for the 5.3.0 & 4.8.6 release packages, CI system etc.

I created

https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-37406 (5.3.0 binary installer)
https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-37407 (4.8.6 binary installer)
https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTQAINFRA-835 (CI system)

to track this.
