Use bindpaths. That is what they are for.

The candle compiler resolves all variables not the linker. That causes that the wixobj and wixlib files have always absolute paths to the files.

As a workaround I added the -bf switch to include the binary files in the wixlib.

This workaround caused me to give up the idea to refer outside files.
The delayed resolving using a wixlib seems to be impossible.
