[PATCH] File paths to imported build files should not be canonicalized

Hi Jesse,
The reason I used canonicalpath here was because the imported file
may import other files. One could set up something like this.

   /a/scripts/overall.xml
   /a/scripts/b/import.xml
       containing <import file="../overall.xml"/>
   
and one could set a symbolic link to /a/scripts/b, say /usr/home/peter/b_scripts
a build-file could then contain:
  <import file="/usr/home/peter/b_scripts/import.xml"/>
which would work with the canonical path, but not with the AbsolutePath
