scripts/sanitycheck: fix ZEPHYR_BASE subdir check edge case

There is a case where using startswith to determine if a path is a
subdirectory of another path can erroneously match. When using a
testcase root outside of ZEPHYR_BASE, an erroneous match will cause the
relative path containing ".." to get prepended to the test output


$HOME/zephyr/zephyr # ZEPHYR_BASE
$HOME/zephyr/zephyr-rust/tests # testcase root

The relative path prepended to the testcase name is ../zephyr-rust/tests
and an example test output dir is

In this case, the build directory escapes the board directory and is no
longer unique. Parallel tests then clobber each other.

Use pathlib instead of string matching to cover this case.
