I'm not sure if we need all that hair.  I assume you want it because
you're aiming for a linker script that only contains:

  GROUP ( libc.so.6 libc_nonshared.a )

but which automatically finds /lib/libc.so.6 and
/usr/lib/libc_nonshared.a.  While this is neat, I don't think it is

I'm not really interested in hiding the FHS's `/' and `/usr' schism, I
just want a system that works when the disk is mounted elsewhere for

I would settle for writing the above script as:

  GROUP ( THISDIR/../../lib/libc.so.6 THISDIR/libc_nonshared.a )

where THISDIR is shorthand for ``the directory which contains this
linker script.''
