Hmh. Thiago is big money, too, though, from what I could see
on the mailing list…

(Note I haven’t been a porter for x32 for a while though I may
still jump in occasionally.)

I wasn’t even aware that Qt6 in Debian is a thing, given your
mail from a year or two ago writing that you have no intent to
package it, let alone that anything is using it. I do see that
qjackctl is apparently using it… colour me surprised. I mostly
switched from sid to bullseye though to avoid UsrMove.

I’d love to provide a working image of it but qt6-base does not
build on x32 because it attempts to use amd64-specific inline
assembly code and (rightfully) this fails. Apparently it hasn’t
been ported to x32 yet.

I *have* successfully used Qt5 on x32 for a long time, e.g.
with musescore{2,3}, if that helps.
