[Yocto] How to properly bulid Qt5 for iMX6ULL?

I am trying to bulid  Qt5 for custom iMX6ULL board with Yocto.


I'm using following layers[all warrior branch]:

  ${YOCTOROOT}/poky/meta \
  ${YOCTOROOT}/poky/meta-poky \
  ${YOCTOROOT}/poky/meta-openembedded/meta-oe \
  ${YOCTOROOT}/poky/meta-openembedded/meta-networking \
  ${YOCTOROOT}/poky/meta-openembedded/meta-python \
  ${YOCTOROOT}/poky/meta-freescale \
  ${YOCTOROOT}/poky/meta-my-custom-bsp \
  ${YOCTOROOT}/poky/meta-qt5 \



I don't need any windowing system so in my distro.conf includes

DISTRO_FEATURES_remove = "x11 wayland directfb vulkan "

It is possible to bulid and run Qt5 apps with this settings for qtbase_git.bbappend in my layer:

PACKAGECONFIG_append = " no-opengl linuxfb accessibility fontconfig libinput xkbcommon" 
PACKAGECONFIG_remove = " examples tests gbm eglfs gl gles2 kms"

but I am not sure if it's the best option because in /meta-freescale/blob/warrior/dynamic-layers/qt5-layer/recipes-qt/qt5/qtbase_%.bbappend 


There is a line for iMX processors with PXP engine(IMX6ULL has no GPU):

PACKAGECONFIG_GL_imxpxp = "gles2"

So I assume that imx6ull should use gles2 backend.


Now when my qtbase_git.bbappend looks like:

PACKAGECONFIG_append = " linuxfb accessibility fontconfig libinput tslib xkbcommon"
PACKAGECONFIG_remove = " examples tests eglfs"


I've got following errors:

ERROR: Nothing PROVIDES 'virtual/egl' (but /yocto/poky/meta-qt5/recipes-qt/qt5/ DEPENDS on or otherwise requires it)

ERROR: Nothing PROVIDES 'virtual/libgles2' (but /yocto/poky/meta-qt5/recipes-qt/qt5/ DEPENDS on or otherwise requires it)

How to setup qtbase and DISTRO FEATURES/PREFFERED_PROVIDERS  properly?
