So as I discovered last night, this doesn't deal with broken symlinks.
For example, if you symlink /bin or /sbin to usr/bin, and then install a
package like kmod, you end up with:

/usr/bin/modprobe -> ../usr/bin/kmod

Which is an orphaned link. The realpath(3) call will fail, and the
conflict won't be resolved. Fixing this seems like we need to emulate
the behavior of GNU readlink's -m flag, where we simply canonicalize as
much as we can (stepping through piece by piece in the path) and then
resolving the remainder with heuristics (squeezing successive slashes
and handling ../). This is ugly...
