Patch to change build symlink to relative none

Description Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-05-23 19:24:15 UTC
When building a module against a kernel where the -devel package is not
installed directly in / there is a problem due to the fact that that the build
symlink is absolute instead of relative. The attached patch corrects this.
