Description

Usual File.symlink (and ln -s) creates a symbolic link as the given argument.
GNU coreutils ln has -r (--relative) option, which resolves the source path relative to the current directory as relative to the link location.

$ mkdir src dest
$ echo ok > src/x
$ ln -s src/x dest
$ readlink dest/x 
src/x
$ cat dest/x
cat: dest/x: No such file or directory
$ rm dest/x
$ ln -sr src/x dest
$ readlink dest/x 
../src/x
$ cat dest/x 
ok
