In the section "Creating directories" the following links are created
in the LFS/usr directory

root:usr# ln -s share/man man
root:usr# ln -s share/doc doc
root:usr# ln -s share/info info
root:usr# ln -s ../etc etc
root:usr# ln -s ../var var

Can anyone tell me why these are created?
as far as I can tell these links are not mentioned in the FSH and
although I think I know the reason for the man,doc and info links
I am clueless about the etc and var links
