I think in your case it is nearly impossible to recognize what a path is
relative to after the fact when there are a number of possibilities. Is
there a CFLAGS or CXXFLAGS that you can pass to gcc/g++ such that they
output full paths? I think that is your best bet.

Yes, the trailing dir separator is always present and expected.
