Symlinks to files which are in the same top-level directory should be relative according to policy. (In other words, a link in /usr to another file in /usr should be relative, while a link in /usr to a file in /etc should be absolute.)
If you use debhelper, running dh_link after creating the package structure will fix this problem for you.
For more information please consult:
- Debian Policy Manual section 10.5
