      Description

      A lot of works has already been done at
      https://wiki.qt.io/Qt6_Build_System
      https://wiki.qt.io/Qt_Build_System_Glossary
      https://wiki.qt.io/Building_Qt_6_from_Git
      https://doc.qt.io/qt-6/build-sources.html

      I'm thinking of putting the additional sections into the public wiki for now, rather than the official docs, for a faster turnaround.

      Document difference between configure args and CMake args, how to mix them and the pass them to configure.

      Provide sample configuration options for each main platform at https://wiki.qt.io/Building_Qt_6_from_Git, or at least link to the docs in https://doc.qt.io/qt-6/build-sources.html e.g. specifics for MinGW, Android, iOS.

      Document the various ways to build and configuring Qt tests: in-tree tests, standalone-tests, qt-cmake-standalone-test
