Lars asked to have the tools and the library builds separate from each other in
Qt 6. This is to reduce the load on the build machines: Currently we build lots
of different tools for the same host architecture -- one for each cross-compile
we do.

So this host/target combined build is on the way out for Qt 6 (independent of
build system used:-).
