 The problem is that if you are in rootgit/rawbuild/vcl/source for example
 git-rev-parse with give you ../../
 the same result as if you where at
 and now you are in the road to readlink and its notorious non-portability

 in other word.. the fact that rawbuild is a collection of link that
 point inside of differents git repos make llife a little more
