      Description

      The build instructions for Qt6 for Android https://doc.qt.io/qt-6/android-building.html#configuring-and-building-on-windows mention -xplatform. But configure -help does not mention that parameter:

      >configure --help
      
      Usage:  configure [options] [-- cmake-options]
      
      This is a convenience script for configuring Qt with CMake.
      Options after the double dash are directly passed to CMake.
      
      Top-level installation directories:
        -prefix <dir> ...... The deployment directory, as seen on the target device.
                             [/usr/local/Qt-$QT_VERSION; qtbase build directory if
                             -developer-build]
        -extprefix <dir> ... The installation directory, as seen on the host machine.
                             [SYSROOT/PREFIX]
        -external-hostbindir <path> ... Path to Qt tools built for this machine.
                             This option is required when cross-compiling Qt.
      
      Fine tuning of installation directory layout. Note that all directories
      except -sysconfdir should be located under -prefix:
      
        -bindir <dir> ......... Executables [PREFIX/bin]
        -headerdir <dir> ...... Header files [PREFIX/include]
        -libdir <dir> ......... Libraries [PREFIX/lib]
        -archdatadir <dir> .... Arch-dependent data [PREFIX]
        -plugindir <dir> ...... Plugins [ARCHDATADIR/plugins]
        -libexecdir <dir> ..... Helper programs [ARCHDATADIR/bin on Windows,
                                ARCHDATADIR/libexec otherwise]
        -qmldir <dir> ......... QML imports [ARCHDATADIR/qml]
        -datadir <dir> ........ Arch-independent data [PREFIX]
        -docdir <dir> ......... Documentation [DATADIR/doc]
        -translationdir <dir> . Translations [DATADIR/translations]
        -sysconfdir <dir> ..... Settings used by Qt programs [PREFIX/etc/xdg]
        -examplesdir <dir> .... Examples [PREFIX/examples]
        -testsdir <dir> ....... Tests [PREFIX/tests]
        -hostdatadir <dir> .... Data used by qmake [PREFIX]
      
      Conventions for the remaining options: When an option's description is
      followed by a list of values in brackets, the interpretation is as follows:
      'yes' represents the bare option; all other values are possible prefixes to
      the option, e.g., -no-gui. Alternatively, the value can be assigned, e.g.,
      --gui=yes. Values are listed in the order they are tried if not specified;
      'auto' is a shorthand for 'yes/no'. Solitary 'yes' and 'no' represent binary
      options without auto-detection.
      
      Configure meta:
      
        -help, -h ............ Display this help screen
        -redo ................ Re-configure with previously used options.
                               Additional options may be passed, but will not be
                               saved for later use by -redo.
      
        -feature-<feature> ... Enable <feature>

        -list-features ....... List available features. Note that some features

      Build options:
      
        -cmake-generator <name> ... Explicitly specify the build system generator for
                               CMake instead of auto-detecting one.

                               using absolute install names (based in LIBDIR) for

        -android-style-assets  Automatically extract style assets from the device at
                               run time. This option makes the Android style behave
                               correctly, but also makes the Android platform plugin
                               incompatible with the LGPL2.1. [yes]
