This commit adds a mechanism to provide absolute paths to the
external programs called by 'git mergetool'. A path can be
specified in the configuation variable mergetool.<tool>.path.
The configuration variable is similar to how we name branches
and remotes. It is extensible if we need to specify more details
about a tool.

The mechanism is especially useful on Windows, where external
programs are unlikely to be in PATH.

[sp: Fixed a few minor issues prior to applying]

+You can explicitly provide a full path to the tool by setting the
