build: remove the test for /proc/self/exe

When building BOINC on MSYS+MinGW the build time environment does have
/proc but the run time environment never has /proc.

BSDs consider /proc to be an optional feature and, as such, /proc may be
present at build time but missing at run time or vice versa.

This makes checking for /proc/self/exe in configure unreliable and the
check is better done at run time. get_real_executable_path() is the only
user of the test result and has already been changed to do the check at
run time.
