cad/kicad: add option EGL

I'm running FreeBSD 13 on a Dell Precision M4800 laptop.  This laptop has a
graphics card that requires the old nvidia-driver-340 to work; more recent
drivers lead to surprises when waking up from suspend-to-RAM.

Unfortunately this driver is too old to support EGL, so when starting the kicad
circuit editor, I get an undefined symbol error (for eglGetPlatformDisplay used
by wx31-gtk3 libraries) due to the missing EGL support.

While there is no fix, this can be worked around by compiling kicad without EGL
support.  This requires toggling the KICAD_USE_EGL cmake option which is
currently hard wired to "on".  The attached patch adds an option to kicad (it
probably also applies to kicad-devel), permitting EGL to be turned off.

Tested on amd64 FreeBSD 13.
