installworld does?  How?  The only possibility I can see here is that
dependency rules might be bad because the full paths may differ, but
that wouldn't affect installworld.

Show me a canonpath(3) or something which will give the simplest symbolic
i.e. a simplified full path given a relative or absolute path with all
redundancies resolved, without resolving away any symbolic paths.

I'm ``blindly'' using the only answer we have to a question: how can I get
an absolute (thus unique) path to an object in the filesystem.

I'm open to alternative ways of doing that, especially as I described
canonpath(3) above.
