When specifying symbolic linking, you can ask cfengine to change the link type to be either relative to the source or to be an absolute path. What this means is the following. Consider the following link:
/var/tmp/cfengine -> /local/cfengine
If we add the option
type=relative, then instead
of creating a link which points to `/local/cfengine',
the link is created pointing to the location
In other words, the link is relative to the calling directory `/var/tmp'.
If a link is specified as being absolute with the option
type=absolute, then cfengine attempts to resolve
to value of the link so as to be the true path of the
target. If the target name contains a symbolic link, then
this is expanded as far as possible to give the true
path to the file. For example, if `/local' is
really a link to `/site/myhost/local' then the link
would point to `/site/myhost/local/cfengine'.
