Yes, that is clear. I can use qtcreator to run apps on the simulator and
my device. But what is the build engine doing to build a project? Where
and how is the cross-compilation achieved?

The background is that I want to build haskell for sailfish.
Bootstrapping it directly on the device is probably taking a long time,
so I'm looking at the build engine. Since it's x86 I can probably use
existing haskell binaries and then cross-compile a haskell for armv7hl.
Or build hsqml apps for armv7hl in the buidl engine.
