Subject: modification to nsplugins.eclass

Hi all.

Somehow I ended up with the request to move phoenix-bin under /opt (where it 
should belong as a binary package). Along the move few issues came up, one of 
which was proper plugin handling. I had to add missing "inherit nsplugins", 
which led me to investigate src_mv_plugins function. As a last action this 
function was symlinking ../${PLUGINS_DIR} to the location of package specific 
plugins dir.

I presume this (local symlinking) was done on an assumption that all browsers  
reside under /usr/lib. However while this can be forsed for many packages it 
breaks when we are dealing with binary package, such as in this case. I have 
modified the eclass to create absolute symlink instead of local. I would like 
to ask involved parties to check and confirm the change (I couldn't do the 
discussion beforehand since phoenix-bin was essentially broken and the fix 
doesn't change the way other packages are handled).
