Add a utility to ensure an absolute path for a potentially realtive path.

Would it make sense for your usage to resolve symbolic links at the same time? If so, you can use the canonicalize-lgpl gnulib module, which portably provides the following function.

/* Return a malloc'd string containing the canonical absolute name of
   the named file.  If any file name component does not exist or is a
   symlink to a nonexistent file, return NULL.  A canonical name does
   not contain any `.', `..' components nor any repeated file name
   separators ('/') or symlinks.  */
char *canonicalize_file_name (const char *);
