Just wondering what people thoughts were on the following idea

add opt to the mkdir loop with /usr and /usr/local

and remove the cd $LFS/opt line and mkdir line

also the three ln -s lines can be shortened to
ln -s share/{man,doc,info} .
<you need the . or it errors>

I can't remember what the exact package was but i do recall installing
something into opt and having it fail because the man1 directory hadn't
been created.

But it cuts down on lines typed and sets up /opt properly if you plan
on installing anything in there.
