Make pbunzip2/pbzcat symlinks relative

Bug Description

When packaging pbzip2 for redistribution (e.g.: as part of a Linux distro), the 'make install' step is performed using an intermediate directory. The 'pbunzip2' and 'pbzcat' symlinks are created based on the temporary installation path which will render them incorrect when the package is installed on a user's system.

The solution to the above is to use relative symlinks:

ln -s -f pbzip2 $(PREFIX)/bin/pbunzip2
ln -s -f pbzip2 $(PREFIX)/bin/pbzcat
