[Rpm-maint] [PATCH] debugedit: skip_dir_prefix should check for dir separator.

To count as a real directory prefix the string matched should either
be equal to the given prefix or start with the prefix plus '/'.

skip_dir_prefix is always used with base_dir or dest_dir which don't
end with a slash themselves.

This really only is an issue if a package would put a directory named
similar to the package source dir (which cargo on fedora does, by adding
a directory named cargo-vendor in the builddir itself).
