Summary:                    e2fsprogs generates absolute symlinks in the root,
confusing ldconfig
Description: 
e2fsprogs generates symlinks within the build tree to absolute paths eg
/lib/libext2.so.*. This works ok on the target system, but confuses
ldconfig when run on the host before generating the image - it ends up
reading the host libraries and gets confused, especially if the endianness
of the host is different to the target.

Attached patch causes e2fsprogs to make relative links instead.
