CMake: Allow finding Qt CMake packages in additional locations
By default, when using the Qt6 CMake package to look for components, the find_package() calls for the components use NO_DEFAULT_PATH to ensure that CMake doesn't accidentally find system (distro) packages. Instead we limit the paths to one level up from where the Qt6 package is. Unfortunately that doesn't quite work for finding Qt packages that might have been installed into a different prefix than where the main Qt prefix is. This happens when Qt addons are built by Conan, and installed into a separate prefix. To allow calls like find_package(Qt6 COMPONENTS ConanAddon) to work in a scenario as described above, introduce a new variable called QT_ADDITIONAL_PACKAGES_PREFIX_PATH which can be used to specify additional paths where Qt CMake packages should be found. This is similar to previously introduced QT_EXAMPLES_CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH variable which was meant for a similar case, but only for examples. Additionally, allow disabling the NO_DEFAULT_PATH option by setting the QT_DISABLE_NO_DEFAULT_PATH_IN_QT_PACKAGES cache variable to TRUE. This would allow regular usage of CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH to work, at the risk that system Qt CMake packages might be found.
