Cross compiling PyQt6 v6.4.2 on NVIDIA Jetson Nano

Hello, what resources are there to get PyQt6 running on the Jetson Nano? When attempting to install PyQt6 on Python 3.7.9 I get the following error:

Defaulting to user installation because normal site-packages is not writeable

note: This error originates from a subprocess, and is likely not a problem with pip.

note: This is an issue with the package mentioned above, not pip.
hint: See above for details.

Attempts at diagnosing this issue with sites like: Ubuntu – Details of package qt6-base-dev in jammy

have not worked.

This would need other users to share experience. There are topics about building QT on Jetson Nano:
PySide2 (Qt for python) installation on Jetson Xavier - #5 by Muscle_Oliver
Jetson Nano and Qt5 - #2 by WayneWWW
Pyqt not working on Nano - #4 by coolbot

There is no topics about cross compiling. Would see if any user have tried it and can share suggestion.
