Using one "bin" is the default behavior, yes, but one can pass -hostprefix to separate them upon install.

Fail in sentence rewrite. I wanted to write "don't think we should mix" and
then rewrote to "think we should simply have different 'bin' dirs" -- except I
forgot to remove the "don't".

I don't have a cross-compiled build of Qt handy, but I think we put both host
and target builds in the same "bin" dir during the build. It should be easy to
split and then always build target tools too.
