When cross-compiling Qt, the tools are not built by default and instead they are searched for in a host Qt installation.
One can force cross-compilation of tools for the target device by specifying -DQT_BUILD_TOOLS_WHEN_CROSSCOMPILING=ON.
QTBUG-95099 describes a use case of searching for pre-existing tools in a host Qt installation even when doing a regular host / desktop build.
An extension of that would be to also force building of the tools in that situation, even when using the tools of the pre-existing host Qt.
Currently that's not possible.
One way would be to generalize QT_BUILD_TOOLS_WHEN_CROSSCOMPILING to QT_FORCE_BUILD_TOOLS instead.
