bug#22646: help pages don't point to code

when you do c-h f or c-h v, emacs provides a link to the source.  i have
always relied on this feature.

in my own code, i have always kept byte-compiled files in a separate
directory from the source.  this has never been a problem.

in a recent version of emacs, perhaps a recent emacs 24 minor version,
it seems that these source links no longer exist if you keep your
byte-compiled files in a separate directory from the source files.

i'd like them to exist again, without having to change the way i load my
byte-compiled files.

keeping byte-compiled files in a separate directory solves a bunch of
problems all at once that i'd rather not unsolve only to have to solve
again in different kludgey ways.

in other words, i want c-h f and c-h v to work again, the way they did
before the recent version of emacs.

i do not know why this occurs.  i just know that it stopped working.
