The symlink is created early in chapter 6 already, just after you create the 
mtab symlink.

I consider the man pages more of a package installation, creating a kernel in 
chapter 8 is a 'thing' on itself, quite seperate. You wouldn't want to re-run 
the man pages installation every time you use those instructions to create a 
new kernel.
