Could you clarify what you mean by "in one go"?

If it's about building host tools as part of the cross-compilation, then no. You first have to build a desktop Qt, and re-use that host Qt installation for its tools, to cross-compile to another target.

That's been one of the goals for Qt 6 regardless of build system, and has been communicated a while ago.
