run_command: report failure to execute the program, but optionally don't
In the case where a program was not found, it was still the task of the caller to report an error to the user. Usually, this is an interesting case but only few callers actually reported a specific error (though many call sites report a generic error message regardless of the cause). With this change the error is reported by run_command, but since there is one call site in git.c that does not want that, an option is added to struct child_process, which is used to turn the error off.
