Subject: RCC: Change the default compression to Zlib

Codebases using QResource::isCompressed() and assuming it is Zlib break
if zstd is enabled. So change the default back to Zlib until Qt 6.0.

[ChangeLog][Important Behavior Changes] RCC's default compression
algorithm was changed back to Zlib, as it was in all previous releases
until 5.13.0. The default will remain Zlib for all Qt 5.x releases but
will change in Qt 6.0. To activate Zstd compression for your resources,
either pass the --compress-algo=zstd option to the rcc tool or add the
XML attribute compression-algorithm="zstd" to the <file> tags in the
.qrc file.
