  Since #8677 changed working directory for games satrted by ./ser 
-script to be top_srcdir, also saved games and logfile go there. Not 
good at all.
  1. It took me some time to find my savegames when they were not in 
builddir where I run ./ser.
  2. Games running from different builddirs mess with each others 
savegames and logs! User can 'set savename' for each instance, but 
probably will not unless (s)he is aware of this problem. And one can't 
do anything for logfiles with hardcoded names.

  I think that best thing to do would be going back to setting 
FREECIV_PATH. To avoid #8677 problems we should check if it's previously 
unset and if so, provide default paths ( '.' and '~/.freeciv') in it 
too. Ugly and hackish solution, yes, but only one I see capable of 
solving all related problems.
