OCC now default build configuration


OpenCascade is now the default when building KiCad. This includes the 5.1 branch. This was done because OCC fixes a few bugs in OCE and OCE support will eventually be removed.

Package developers should adjust the platform build and install dependencies to OCC as required. If a platform doesn't support OCC, configure builds with -DKICAD_USE_OCE=ON -DKICAD_USE_OCC=OFF in order to build against OCE. Also, make sure OCE is uninstalled from your system before installing OCC as library conflicts can cause issues on some platforms.
