[tex-live] SyncTeX should always write absolute paths

probably this is the wrong place to ask, but I'm unsure who exactly is  
responsible for SyncTeX in TeX Live. However, I think that SyncTeX  
should always output absolute paths. The current behavior is to write  
relative paths for the input files, which breaks inverse search e.g.  
in Skim when a different output directory is set via -output- 
directory. I could easily fix this by having my build script replace  
all input paths with absolute paths. It would be great if SyncTeX  
wrote absolute paths right from the beginning.
