[Qbs] Fallback dependency to system libraries

I just created QBS issue QBS-1443. This one describes a regression
coming from the fallback behaviour of trying to load system libraries
whenever a internal dependency could not be resolved.

I really believe that this kind of "magic" is not a good idea: qbs may
use a wrong library if an internal component is not available anymore
but somewhere in the project/product tree a system library is used
instead of presenting an error message.

IMHO the user should explicitly model if the dependency goes to an
internal qbs component or an external system library. At least the
fallback should not be enabled by default in all Depends statements.
