Building QT6.4 for MacOS with Ninja generator

In the same SSH session where I built QT6.4 for MacOS with Unix Makefiles generator I installed ninja:

and did the same configuration as before, but changed the installation directory:

scp /mnt/d/dev.distrib/qt-everywhere-src-6.4.0.tar.xz admin@192.168.0.112:/Users/admin/repos
tar xf qt-everywhere-src-6.4.0.tar.xz
cd ~/build/qt
export MY_QT_SRC_DIR=~/repos/qt-everywhere-src-6.4.0

WARNING: QDoc will not be compiled, probably because libclang could not be located. This means that you cannot build the Qt documentation.
Either set CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or LLVM_INSTALL_DIR to the location of your llvm installation.
On Linux systems, you may be able to install libclang by installing the libclang-dev or libclang-devel package, depending on your distribution.
On macOS, you can use Homebrew's llvm package.
You will also need to set the FEATURE_clang CMake variable to ON to re-evaluate this check.
WARNING: Clang-based lupdate parser will not be available. LLVM and Clang C++ libraries have not been found.
You will need to set the FEATURE_clangcpp CMake variable to ON to re-evaluate this check.

Qt is now configured for building. Just run 'cmake --build . --parallel'

Once everything is built, you must run 'cmake --install .'
Qt will be installed into '/Users/admin/libs/QT6.4/MacOs'

To configure and build other Qt modules, you can use the following convenience script:
        /Users/admin/libs/QT6.4/MacOs/bin/qt-configure-module

If reconfiguration fails for some reason, try removing 'CMakeCache.txt' from the build directory
