What do you think about making the mozilla-central/obj-x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/dist/bin/libnssutil3.so symlink relative vs. absolute? When I follow these instructions [1] to build Firefox, I get the following error:

 > $ ./mach run

> XPCOMGlueLoad error for file .../mozilla-central/obj-x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/dist/bin/libnssutil3.so: > .../mozilla-central/obj-x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/dist/bin/libnssutil3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
 > $

mozilla-central/obj-x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/dist/bin/libnssutil3.so is a symlink to mozilla-central/obj-x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/dist/lib/libnssutil3.so, but the symlink is absolute, so if I move the source tree to another path, I get the error above.
Could these symlinks be made relative vs. absolute?
