I think we've already found out that the opinions *aren't* equal.
So far the score seems to be:
        Red Hat: will use relative symlink
        Solaris: will use hardwired path in program
        ???: will use absolute symlink
Peter's patch supports only the third case, which no packager has yet
committed to use (though I suppose Debian might like to).  It just gets
in the way for the other two cases.

                        regards, tom lane
