Description

Reported by user:

There's a bit of inconsistency over how co-locating the licence file and libsaxoneec.so works when used with softlinks.

Soft linking libraries is pretty typical in /usr/lib so I think Saxon should support this.

If I have the below setup in /usr/lib it doesn't work:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 43 Mar 21 22:27 /usr/lib/libsaxoneec.so -> /opt/Saxonica/Saxon-EEC1.1.2/libsaxoneec.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 31 Oct 16 14:53 /usr/lib/saxon-license.lic -> /opt/Saxonica/saxon-license.lic

Guessing that the softlink for libsaxoneec.so is resolved to it's real path I tried putting saxon-licence.lic in the same directory, but it doesn't work either:

/opt/Saxonica/Saxon-EEC1.1.2/

Some sort of resolving required.
