Allow add_path() to add non-existent directories to the path
This function had used make_absolute_path(); but this function dies if the directory that contains the entry whose relative path was supplied in the argument does not exist. This is a problem if the argument is, for example, "../libexec/git-core", and that "../libexec" does not exist. Since the resolution of symbolic links is not required for elements in PATH, we can fall back to using make_nonrelative_path(), which simply prepends $PWD to the path. We have to move make_nonrelative_path() alongside make_absolute_path() in abspath.c so that git-shell can be linked. See 5b8e6f85f. Signed-off-by: Johannes Sixt <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
