Should this be added to an existing coreutils' command or add a new

relpath. But I'm not sure the standard organization in coreutils.

There is already an utility called realpath in Debian that does what you want given -s as an argument. There's also a realpath(3) wrapper in FreeBSD, but it does not accept -s. It's effectively a synonym with GNU coreutil's readlink -f. I think coreutils should include Debian's realpath or a compatible replacement. Should we approach FreeBSD wrt to -s?
