I got my MacMini with M1 CPU last week, but have not had the time, yet, to seriously try to build subsurface on it. 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.
