[Qbs] Licensing of my own QBS modules

I took a quick look and:
- protobuf module - there's actually an open issue for this (https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QBS-563) so maybe you could take ownership ;)
- cuda, gsoap... potentially useful, but I'm not that familiar with them
- libs/... good, but set up in a way that seems fairly specific to your system. Could be useful if made more general
I'm curious about your need for the functions in GccUtl. Why do you need the full path to libstdc++.a? And why gcc-ar instead of ar? It's possible we might want to make this configurable in Qbs, since there's an llvm-ar as well and there's presumably reasons a user might want to use the toolchain archiver vs the system archiver (same with the assembler).
