Subject: relative link between and the dynamic linker

I'd like to suggest making the symbolic link between and
ld-musl-<target>.so.1 relative rather than absolute.  A relative path makes
movement between systems easier, in particular when one is copying cross
binaries to into a runtime environment.

diff --git a/tools/ b/tools/
index d913b60..1c102f5 100755
--- a/tools/
+++ b/tools/

 umask 077
 if test "$symlink" ; then
-ln -s "$1" "$tmp"
+ln -s -r "$1" "$tmp"
 cat < "$1" > "$tmp"
 chmod "$mode" "$tmp"

The final result would look something like this: -> ../usr/lib/

Rather than: -> /tmp/musl/install/usr/lib/
