There is a sad typo above: Linux *does* have symlinks from
/usr/lib to /lib, so both use /usr/lib for linking.

Not that I'm completely happy with introducing yet another
variable in bsd.lib.mk, but the attached patch:

- Leaves only one set of .so symlinks in /usr/lib.

  Benefits: all other systems that use both /lib and /usr/lib
  (that I've been able to test) have .so links in /usr/lib
  only, and use them for linking; GCC in ports will like this

- Uses absolute paths in .so symlinks.

  Benefit: works for people who have their /usr symlinked

- Works without any more modifications to GCC.  ld(1)
  hacks can go away too.

Please review.
