      Description

      After installation, the Desktop\Qt\5.0.0\msvc2010\lib folder contains duplicates of most of the .dll files from Desktop\Qt\5.0.0\msvc2010\bin. The duplicate files total to around 38Mib for the 32-bit build and 46Mib for the 64-bit build.

      As discovered in the Qt 4.x lifecycle, this duplication is unnecessary – it was sufficient to put the .dll's in the bin folder so that they are found when that folder is added to the %PATH%. I expect that the same is true for Qt 5.
