Path Based Multisite Rewrite rule absolute path without trailing slash

The .htaccess rewrite rules generator output the absolute path to the files, but there is missing a slash at the begining to use it as absolute.
I've seen the same problem at
The solution is to make it relative, or to add a "/" at the beggining of the two rewrite rules.
I think the .htaccess code generated can be fixed for future users.

Hi @skalex, thanks for the report.

Can you provide more detail on the issue that you're seeing? It would be helpful to know what URL is being attempted for the CSS and JS files that is not working.

The links attemped for the CSS and JS are fine and now working correctly. i.e.
The problem is the .htaccess rewrite rules, they failed, so the Apache could not find the files. I have fixed it modifing them in the .htaccess, but the bug I am reporting is that the generated code must be okay, it must not require aditional modifications. The .htacceess generated code was

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /pages/
RewriteRule index\.php$ - [L]
# add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule - [L]
([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) var/www/site/$2 [L]
RewriteRule ([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ var/www/site/$2 [L]
RewriteRule . index.php [L]

As you can see, the path is incorrect, because is missing a trailing slash. It must be changed to from "var/www/site/$2" to "/var/www/site/$2" to make it absolute. Other way, I also fixed it setting to "$2", a relative path.
I have looked at the network.php, I think the problem is on the $rewrite_base variable. I don't understand why the trailing slash are removed

$rewrite_base = ! empty( $wp_siteurl_subdir ) ? ltrim( trailingslashit( $wp_siteurl_subdir ), '/' ) : ;

Now, I have changed the site URL, so the $rewrite_base is setted to "" (wich is correct to make a relative path). I can't reproduce now the bug, cause I continue with my site construction. If I can reproduce it I will add the details.
