Absolute Linking is not actually Absolute

Absolute paths in blender OS X are something like that: ‘/Applications/…’ , or ‘/Users/Name/…’ while they should be ‘Volumes/Disk/Applications/…’ or ‘Volumes/Disk/Users/Name/…’
If I want to run blender from another disk all the links are broken, nor they can converted to relative.
Am I wrong about that?
There is any solutions to this issue?

Thank you,
