The original motivation for pyqtdeploy was to simplify the deployment to Android and iOS, ie. in a cross-development environment and with restrictions on what the deployable package was allowed to contain.

I wouldn't be surprised if other tools were better (or at least easier to use) when target == host, but I'm not sure if they support target != host.
