Add initial support for CMake "Ninja Multi-Config" generator
This allows doing debug_and_release builds with Ninja on all platforms. The "Ninja Multi-Config generator" is available starting with CMake 3.17. Desired configurations can be set via CMAKE_CONFIGURATION_TYPES. Possible values: "Release, Debug, RelWithDebInfo, MinRelSize". For example -DCMAKE_CONFIGURATION_TYPES="Release;Debug". The first configuration is the 'default' configuration which is built when calling ninja with no arguments. To build all targets of a certain configuration use "ninja all:Release" or "ninja all:Debug". To build all targets in all configurations use "ninja all:all". Note that the first configuration influences which configuration of tools will be used when building the libraries for all configurations. In simple terms, when configured with -DCMAKE_CONFIGURATION_TYPES="Release;Debug" the release version of moc is used by AUTOMOC. When configured with -DCMAKE_CONFIGURATION_TYPES="Debug;Release" the debug version of moc is used by AUTOMOC. Framework builds and Ninja Multi-Config don't currently work together due to multiple bugs in CMake, which ends up generating an invalid ninja file with duplicate rules. There are also issues with placement of the debug artifacts. This will be handled in a follow up patch after CMake is fixed.
