#2988: /var/lock should be relative

 Priority:  normal  |   Milestone:  7.1                          
Component:  Book    |     Version:  SVN                          
 Severity:  normal  |    Keywords:                               
 In section 6.5: Creating directories, the LFS manual indicates that
 /var/lock should be symlinked to /run/lock.  I would suggest that the
 symlink should actually be "../run/lock" (relative instead of absolute),
 so that it always points to the same location even if it's accessed from
 outside of the LFS chroot.
