Fix detection of QMAKE_DEFAULT_LIBDIRS with Clang under Linux
With 4183475080d334d7d17d02e6ad4eb53c01205c54, Qt fails to build if qmake is unable to detect the compiler's default include and library search paths. Clang on non-Darwin systems was missing working code for the detection. Unlike GCC, Clang on its own does not print the library search paths when called with the -v option. On Darwin, the -Wl,-v option will reach ld64, which will print those paths. However, neither GNU ld nor gold will print anything useful with just -v. GNU ld has a --verbose option that does print some search paths, but those are not the ones used when ld is invoked (via collect2) by GCC or Clang, so it can't be used. To make Clang print its library search paths one can use -print-search-dirs, which however doesn't print include search paths. So amend the existing code in order to make a second call to clang on non-Darwin systems. This second call is used for library path detection, and fixes the build on non-Darwin (tested on Linux).
