This patch affects several files that affect how we detect mingw and perl
on Windows. The initial motivation is:
where, with Hadrian building relocatable (non-inplace) GHCs, the current
detection mechanism falls short by e.g only trying $topdir/../mingw. But
in Hadrian, for reasons given in that issue, we would need to store e.g mingw
under $topdir/../../mingw except for binary distributions, where we want
to follow the existing structure, in which case $topdir/../mingw is correct. So
we need to support both, which is what this patch hopefully implements.
