That plethora of libxcb-xxx libraries kept breaking my build of 6.3.1 on 
a new Ubuntu 22.04 recently. First I tried installing them nicely one by 
sudo apt install libxcb-fruitbasket
sudo apt install libxcb-flowerarrangement
sudo apt install libxcb-birdwatcher
etc. etc. until I learned that you could do
sudo apt install libxcb*

Got all 68 (!) of them but at least my Qt build was successful :-)
