git-gui: Adapt discovery of oguilib to execdir 'libexec/git-core'
The new execdir is two levels below the root directory, while the old execdir 'bin' was only one level below. This commit adapts the discovery of oguilib that uses relative paths accordingly. We determine whether we have the extra level in the same way in which the Makefile defines sharedir, i.e. whether the last directory part is 'git-core'.
