Making changes to the codebase *after* testing and *before* you release means that you are releasing untested code. My preference would be to invest some time in ensuring that the links are all relative, and to remove all server-specific items to a config file of some sort; depending on which technology you're using. This will probably save time (and stress) in the long term.
