buildtools: allow symlinks within a source directory
When creating the symlinks for header files to the include folder, the relpath script dereferenced all symlinks. This made it impossible to have file A.h renamed to B.h and then symlinked back to its original name. This is useful to be able to do when refactoring or reworking a library. Change this so that we just use the dirname of the path from readlink, we can use the basename as it was originally, even if it was a symlink. Signed-off-by: Bruce Richardson <>
