Configurable Podman install location on Mac

See original GitHub issue

Is your enhancement related to a problem? Please describe

The desktop expects Podman to be in several places but doesn’t actually look in the user PATH which means if the laptop is locked down (i.e. corporate) it won’t work.

Describe the solution you’d like

Either respect user PATH or allow configuration of where Podman is installed.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered

Some notes while I implement this:

  • Implemented into package.json of the podman plugin for automatic loading
  • Setting should appear under Preferences & not extension (as it related to podman binary not the machine created)
  • There is a bug with scope: with package.json of it not appearing under Preferences and for now I’ll proceed with implementing with the setting currently appearing under Extensions > Podman

@benoitf Yea, customising the binary location would suffice.
