/etc/mtab symlink in susexxx_base/INSTALL

The INSTALL script in suse{100,113}_base contains
        ${LN} -fs ${EMULDIR}/proc/mounts ${EMULDIR}/etc/mtab
I think this should rather be
        ${LN} -fs ../proc/mounts ${EMULDIR}/etc/mtab
because otherwise you end up with something like
        /usr/pkg/emul/linux32/etc/mtab -> /usr/pkg/emul/linux32/proc/mounts
which, in the emulation, will first look up
which will succeed up to /usr/pkg/emul/linux32/usr and then fail.

You can simply execute
and then try
        ls -lL /etc/mtab
from the Linux shell to test.
