fluid has its own storage concept, all other demos in test/ have their resources stored in folder 'test/mac-resources', including test/editor.plist.

Please test this commit on your local macOS system and report if there's anything not working. I tested thoroughly all app generation and 'make clean', 'make distclean' etc.

The next step - after hopefully positive feedback - would be to upload this as 1.3.6rc2 which can be tested after download to see if there are no other issues.

OK, after another small patch I uploaded a *temporary* release tarball for developer testing. This is NOT the
next official release candidate and can't be "found" on the website.

Please download one of the following files on your Mac (Big Sur, 11.3 preferred) and try if all builds well and if the app bundles, particularly fluid, blocks, checkers, and sudoku (which all have a special icon) can be clicked and executed from the Finder and/or with 'open'.

Note that the download via webbrowser is (was) the necessary step before expanding the tarballs to trigger the macOS security problem. This should be gone with the new tarballs.

AFAICT we've only seen the issue on macOS Big Sur 11.3 (very recent upgrade) but feedback regarding all other macOS versions would also be appreciated.
