Testsuite: allow spaces in TEST_HC passed in by the user

Don't use the GNU make function 'realpath' (reverting e66a81c6),
because it doesn't handle spaces in paths. Instead, use 'cygpath' to
convert Windows style paths (e.g. C:/foo/) to mingw style paths (e.g.
c/foo/), and then call 'which'.

 * make TEST_HC=ghc
 * make TEST_HC=/d/home/thomie/ghc-validate/bindisttest/install\ \ \ dir/bin/ghc
 * make TEST_HC=D:/home/thomie/ghc-validate/bindisttest/install\ \ \ dir/bin/ghc
