      Description

      This fails:

      lib.files = c:/mingw/bin/libstdc++-6.dll"
      lib.path = dist

      INSTALLS += lib

      because qmake translates it to
      copy /y c:\mingw\bin\libstdc++-6.dll <PROJECTPATH>/dist

      and windows interprets "+" as a special character. Quoting the whole filename solves the problem.
