      Description

      All of our qt-cmake shell wrappers specify no CMake generator to use, to allow the developer to choose which one they want.

      The usual makefiles / ninja generator is not really usable on iOS. Just for iOS, consider defaulting to the Xcode generator when using qt-cmake.
      Need to check if this breaks anything in Qt Creator integration.
      And ideally the script wrapper should be smart enough to allow specifying a different generator (so check to only specify the var if it wasn't specified by the user on the command line)
