You are talking about source file paths, right? From what I've seen, libdw 
just returns the paths that have been embedded by the compiler in the debug 
section. If you compile with relative paths, then the compiler (sadly) adds 
relative paths too. The only "fix" I'm aware of is to use a build system that 
enforces absolute paths everywhere.
