Are the gcc build files still needed after section 5.4?

What man page are you looking at? Here's what I have:

ln [OPTION]... [-T] TARGET LINK_NAME   (1st form)

In  the  1st form, create a link to TARGET with the name LINK_NAME.

What in that snippet from the man page is difficult to understand?

cc -> gcc

Why would you interpret that link to mean the current directory?
Especially when the next sentence (2nd form) specifically mentions
the current directory.
