because I had perl installed with git, and the original code couldn't find it.

projects: Improve Windows perl detection in batch scripts
- Determine if perl is in the user's PATH by running perl.exe.

Prior to this change detection was done by checking the PATH for perl/
but that did not work in all cases (eg git install includes perl but
not in perl/ path).

Bug: #2865

XP doesn't have where so I changed it to perl --version to check if perl is in the path. Thanks, landed in 220cd24.
