 3.7 /mnt : Mount point for temporarily mounted filesystems

 This directory is provided so that the system administrator may
 temporarily mount filesystems as needed. The content of this directory
 is a local issue and should not affect the manner in which any program
 is run.

 We recommend against the use of this directory by installation programs,
 and suggest that a suitable temporary directory not in use by the system
 should be used instead.
