Fix build paths for cmake's Xcode project generator on macOS.
Multi-configuration generators (such as Xcode or VS) append the current build configuration to most paths (eg. Debug/Release). Currently this results in inconsistent paths for the application bundle and the included command line tools. This commit sets the correct path information for multi-configuration generators for macOS application bundles. The standard Makefile behaviour is untouched. One Windows specific configuration was changed, as it was conflicting with these changes. This needs to be checked before merging. Additionally the wrapper scripts are omitted for Xcode, as the path to the binaries depends on the configuration chosen in Xcode. Therefore it is not viable to create these scripts in the cmake run.

If you upgrade the major release of macOS on which you are building
Wireshark, we advise that, before you do any builds after the upgrade,
you remove the build directory and all its subdiretories, and repeat the
