Fix resolving of libraries on Apple platforms
Qt couldn't be configured with -system-zlib on macOS, because qmake failed to find "/usr/lib/libz.dylib". The library path is something along the lines of "/Applications/" which doesn't contain "libz.dylib". But it contains "libz.tbd", which is a YAML-file pointing to "/usr/lib/libz.dylib". One can pass the absolute path to this tbd file to the linker, which will then pick up "/usr/lib/libz.dylib". Introduce a new variable QMAKE_EXTENSIONS_AUX_SHLIB, which is a list of auxiliary extensions for shared libs, and add the "tbd" extension to it on macOS.
