gpython: Detect buildout and don't expect exedir to be on sys.path[0] in that case

When buildout generates scripts, it injects the following prologue for


   import sys
   sys.path[0:0] = [

   import SCRIPT

This way path to eggs are inserted before what was originally
sys.path[0] and it breaks gpython check that `sys.path[0] == exedir`.

-> Fix it by detecting buildout and in that case verifying that exedir
is only present in sys.path, not located in sys.path[0].
