It sounds like you want $abs_top_srcdir

Relevant documentation:

Usually when people use a term like 'absolute' I assume that they mean the real underlying path, removing the influence of symbolic links, so that it reflects the operating system's opinion of the path. If a computed path based on the specified path to the configure script is ok, then $abs_top_srcdir is great.
