Qt Creator doesn't recognize the Qt "installation" directory.

I just built Qt 5.15 and Qt Creator (on Mac OS). On first launch, Qt Creator prompts you to "Choose Qt installation."
By default, Qt installs to /usr/local/Qt-(version). But neither this nor any subdirectory appears to be recognized as an installation directory by this dialog. What should I point it to?
qmake -query returns the following, none of which appears to be acceptable as the "installation" directory. Nor does the directory where qmake resides.
@Stokestack Did you add your custom built Qt in QtCreator and did you create a Kit with this Qt version?

No, that's what I thought this dialog was for. I actually did read documentation before posting, but haven't come across anything about "creating a kit."
What do you do to add a custom build in Qt Creator and create a kit?

No, this is to select an existing Kit for your project.
Go to "Tools/Options.../Kits". Then in that dialog select "Qt Versions" tab and add your Qt there (you need to select qmake from that Qt build). Then, in same dialog, go to Kits and add a new one where you select Qt you added just before.
