merge-file: correctly open files when in a subdir
run_setup_gently() is called before merge-file. This may result in changing current working directory, which wasn't taken into account when opening a file for writing. Fix by prepending the passed prefix. Previous var is left so that error messages keep referring to the file from the user's working directory perspective.
