Without trying I expect the biggest obstacle will be to have an ARM native Qt library. At this point, Subsurface uses Qt5 and nobody has started a transition to Qt6 yet and it might well be that there will never be an ARM version of Qt5.

So it looks like some people have been successful compiling Qt 5.15.2 for M1 - at least that's how I interpret <>
I don't have access to an M1 Mac, so this isn't something I can really usefully try...

But if anyone wants to give it a go, that would be cool
