build: fix ninja install on FreeBSD
The post-install script to symlink the PMDs from their own PMD directory to the regular lib directory (so they would be found by ld at runtime) was using the "-r" flag to ln to create relative symlinks. This flag is unsupported by ln on FreeBSD causing the ninja install step to fail. Reworking the script to take the relative driver path as parameter removes the need for ln to calculate the relative path ensuring compatibility with FreeBSD. As part of the fix, we move the registration of the install script to the config/ file, from the top level one. This improves readability as the script takes as parameters the variables set in that file.
