Hi Josh,

Hello there, hope you're all well.

I recently ran into trouble building Chicken on my MacOS system (Big Sur
11.2.3) due to issues with command-line tool paths. There was a change in
c6a6a26225620b566f8bc487cc4180de55555a2a that assumed the user has Xcode
installed, and that the tools are within /Applications/

However, it's possible to install command-line tools on MacOS without Xcode
(if one tries to run e.g. `gcc` on a fresh MacOS install you'll be prompted
to do so), in which case the Makefile's assumptions are not sufficient. This
patch adds a check to see if Xcode is installed, and if not uses the tools
in /usr/bin instead.

(Please note that this is my first patch to Chicken, and first patch in
general :P, so my apologies if I'm missing anything. I'm also not familiar
with GNU's make so I hope the construct I chose is portable enough.)

Thank you all for your time and hard work!

Thanks for your patch.  Not sure if you got any feedback on it?  If not,
apologies for the embarrassingly long time to reply.

The change looks sensible to me, but I don't have an OSX system to test

Any takers?

All the best.
