This modification is for only debian, so I plan to put special shell
script "path-usrlib-rel2abs.sh" and use it in build.mk after installing
tmp-libc as follows:
for file in $1/*
if [ -L $file ];
newfile=`readlink $file | sed 's/\.\.\/\.\.\/lib/\/lib/'`
ln -sf $newfile $file
debian-glibc guys, OK to commit?
