Hi Thiago,

I tried the following:
./configure -developer-build -debug -shared -platform win32-g++
-prefix D:/Qt/5.11/arm -device linux-beagleboard-g++ -device-option
-sysroot /d/compilers/sysroot-glibc-linaro-2.25-2017.11-arm-linux-gnueabihf
-opensource -confirm-license -v -nomake examples -nomake tests
-qt-zlib -no-opengl -qt-libpng -no-eglfs -no-xcb -no-accessibility
-skip 3d -skip activeqt -skip androidextras -skip canvas3d -skip
connectivity -skip datavis3d -skip declarative -skip doc -skip
docgallery -skip enginio -skip feedback -skip gamepad -skip
graphicaleffects -skip imageformats -skip location -skip macextras
-skip multimedia -skip networkauth -skip pim -skip purchasing -skip qa
-skip quick1 -skip quickcontrols -skip quickcontrols2 -skip
remoteobjects -skip repotools -skip script -skip scxml -skip sensors
-skip serialbus -skip serialport -skip speech -skip svg -skip systems
-skip tools -skip translations -skip virtualkeyboard -skip webchannel
-skip webengine -skip webglplugin -skip websockets -skip webview -skip
winextras -skip x11extras -skip xmlpatterns -no-openvg -no-qml-debug
-no-openssl -no-pch

As a result, I get the following during installation stage:
D:/QtBuild/qtlast.new/qt5/qtbase/bin/qmake.exe -install qinstall

How can I avoid combining sysroot and prefix into

I'm using ActivePerl v5.26.1
