Below is the error thrown while building Qt 5.12.8 sources:

cannot find crti.o: No such file or directory
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile.core_module:84: recipe for target
'../../lib/libQt5WebEngineCore.so.5.12.8' failed
make[4]: *** [../../lib/libQt5WebEngineCore.so.5.12.8] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory
Makefile:124: recipe for target 'sub-core_module-pro-make_first' failed
make[3]: *** [sub-core_module-pro-make_first] Error 2

make[1]: Leaving directory
Makefile:153: recipe for target 'module-qtwebengine-make_first' failed
make: *** [module-qtwebengine-make_first] Error 2

The cross compiled crt1.o is found
in /home/target/ti-processor-sdk-linux-rt-am335x-evm-

Host 32 bit binaries for the missing crt1.0 are found like below:
target at ubuntu:~/qt-everywhere-src-5.12.8$ find /usr/ -name crti*

 Can we disable build of v8 snapshot with
-no-feature-nowebengine-v8-snapshot-support in Qt 5.12.8 sources and not
possible in Qt 5.15 sources?
So v8 snapshot doesnot requires host 32 bit binaries to cross-compile for
the target device?

Also is it mandatory to have opengl es2 configured for Qt to make use of
QtWebEngine widgets in rendering hmtl content since there is no hardware
accelerated rendering for the device?

Best Regards,
