Description Behdad Esfahbod 2016-05-19 17:55:50 UTC
They should have been done relative to current file, not the processes cwd.

To fix this I suggest:

  - We do a deprecation warning for such cases and propose a fix:
  - Add a prefix="relative" that makes the relative path be relative to current file,
  - Add a prefix="cwd" for relative to cwd.  Might be useful for <dir prefix="cwd">fonts.conf</dir> for some usecases...
