I’d expect

makeRelative "some/path" "some/path/a/b/c" == "a/b/c"

Instead, I get the second path back. Is that intentional?

hmm, looking at it, makeRelative has no generalised QuickCheck properties, and all the specific instances are on absolute paths. I'll try and come up with a patch for this that does the right thing in this situation.

Neil's fixed this; the fix is included in both 6.6.1 and the HEAD.
