The ".." substitution in mindi works only for one case

There is a ".." substitution in mindi, created here, but it works only for one case, and it doesn't work for RHEL 4 and RHEL 3 gawk.

Exemple, for gawk in RHEL 4 :

# whereis gawk | xargs ls -l

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 252380 Nov  4  2004 /bin/gawk
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     14 Apr  6  2006 /usr/bin/gawk -> ../../bin/gawk
-rw-r--r--  2 root root  24639 Nov  4  2004 /usr/share/man/man1/gawk.1.gz

# mindi --readalllink /usr/bin/gawk

# echo "../../bin/gawk" | perl -pi -e 's|([^/]+)/([^/]+)/\.\./([^/]+)|$1/$3|'    

# echo "/usr/test/../bin/gawk" | perl -pi -e 's|([^/]+)/([^/]+)/\.\./([^/]+)|$1/$3|'

/usr/bin/gawk        (it works only for that test case)

Other cases where it is a problem :

/usr/lib/ -> ../../lib/

/usr/lib/ -> ../../lib/

On RHEL 6 (and surely on RHEL 5) there are also other libs under /usr/lib with links to "../../xxxxxxxx", then that mindi problem will occur with it too.
