I don't  really understand why the  fact that the symlink  is a relative
one is a problem. From what I understand, you want to try to access to:

The output of ls -l is misleading for this file:
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 49 janv. 22 12:37 /var/lib/roundcube/plugins/jqueryui/js/jquery-ui.min.js -> ../../../../javascript/jquery-ui/jquery-ui.min.js

However, readlink -f output confirms that everything works as expected:
 $ readlink -f /var/lib/roundcube/plugins/jqueryui/js/jquery-ui.min.js

get the file:
 $ curl http://localhost/roundcube/plugins/jqueryui/js/jquery-ui.min.js

I have:
 Alias /roundcube /var/lib/roundcube
