QtSupport/OS X: Fix issues with selecting qmake from Qt 4 packages

Native file dialogs can only filter against the names of resolved
symlinks, not the name of the symlink (native Cocoa issue), which is
"qmake-4.8" in case of Qt 4 binary packages.
Simply avoid any stupid issues with not being able to select qmake
executables with whatever prefix by making the filter "qmake*".
