Use the qmake based configuration system also on Windows
Adapt configure.exe to use qmake to do most of the work of configuring Qt. This unifies a large part of our configuration system between Unix and Windows. configure.exe is now still doing the license check, creating qconfig.cpp, building qmake, and not much more. On the way, re-implement the still missing Windows-specific tests with the new system. The opengles2 vs. opengl-desktop conditions got a bit convoluted, as Unix prefers desktop GL, while Windows GLES2 (via ANGLE). Superficially, there is a circular dependency, but the platform scopes are supposed to break it.

It is also possible to manipulate any QMAKE_* variable, to amend the values
from the mkspec for the build of Qt itself, e.g., QMAKE_CXXFLAGS+=-g3.
