[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.
