In build.py we have our own find_executable that looks
a lot like the distutils one that I switched to shutil.which.

This find_executable isn't quite the same as shutil.which
so I've refactored it to call that in the correct way.

Note that the path passed to shutil.which is in the form that
PATH would be, meaning separators are allowed.

>>> shutil.which("gcc", path="/home/david.spickett:/bin")


We just need to make sure it doesn't ignore the existing PATH
and normalise the result if it does find the binary.

The .exe extension is automatically added to the binary name
if we are on Windows.

Depends on D124601 <https://reviews.llvm.org/D124601>
