bug#47385: make check confused by ../../expect/expect directory

When running make check on Solaris, I initially got lots of failures
like the following:

Running /vol/src/gnu/dejagnu/dejagnu-1.6.3-rc1/testsuite/runtest.libs/libs.exp .
ERROR: tcl error sourcing /vol/src/gnu/dejagnu/dejagnu-1.6.3-rc1/testsuite/runte

    invoked from within
"catch "uplevel #0 source $test_file_name" msg"

It turns out that there I happened to have a ../../expect/expect
directory there.

Unfortunately, lib/runtest.exp (findfile), which is called from at the
beginning of testsuite/lib/runtest.exp, only uses "file exists" which
also works for directories, thus the diagnosis.
