Bug#423638: apache2.2-common: a2enmod uses relative path instead of absolute

I can understand the aesthetic desire for a2ensite and a2enmod to do
the same thing, but I don't understand your security concerns.  There
is simply no way a relative link to ../mods-available/foo.load is ever
going to behave differently than an absolute link to

So this is a purely aesthetic issue - or am I missing something?
