I tried, but I'm afraid that doesn't work; grub-syslinux2cfg still calls
grub_canonicalize_file_name on its --root argument, and that produces a
canonicalised absolute pathname, so the output still contains quite a
few absolute paths.  Given that, I think my previous patch is the
simplest approach.
