[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] Compute absolute paths in configure

Hi all,

if you set for example a prefix like this:
configure --prefix=../..

then you'll find the relative path for example in the pkg-config
files, which doesn't work properly.

This patch make configure compute the absolute path of every path set
by configure (yes maybe it needs to be splitted also for what regards
the PATHS_LIST part).

I'm not sure if this is correct though, maybe there are cases where
there is the need to keep relative paths (but this doesn't work for
sure with pkg-config paths, which need to be absolute), in those cases
the user is forced to specify absolute paths.
