Task QTBUG-14131 asks to make "runtime" the default on OS X but "linked" the 
default everywhere else. That's how I started with 

However, I later decided to remove the OS X-specific check. Why have it in the 
first place? The reason why we concluded in that task to ask for the runtime as 
the default for OS X was because we required the libdbus-1 headers. Now we 
don't: we can compile QtDBus without libdbus-1, which is the default situation 
in OS X.

In any case, I just think we shouldn't special-case it.
