Hmm, sorry, it seems you missed declaration and definition of
canonicalize_file_name or is it a (system) function my sarge system
doesn't know of (in that case, which header file do I have to include)?

Generally I fully agree with you: If you find a simple implementation,
that ensures, that readlink-values not starting with '/' are prepended
with dirname(symlink) followed by a "/", just do it.

So long,
