It will be obvious when I commit the modifier+symlink changes in a few
minutes... But here's the basic use that the other relative doesn't allow:

relative-to bin/gcc/release bin/gcc/release ==> .
relative-to bin/gcc/release subdir ==> ../bin/gcc/release

I need it to make symlinks that don't have the pathalogical
"../../../bin/gcc/release" path in them.
