Re: /usr -> .

This is probably a dumb question, but currently where is /usr a

dir, and not a symlink.
As Thomas pointed out earlier, it's specific to the GNU system, and
that's where Debian GNU/Hurd took it from. The default for Debian
GNU/Hurd is to have a separate /usr, though.
(See http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/faq.en.html#q1-7 for the
reasons behind the symlink.)
Also, with my limited knowledge, would a hard link work instead of a
soft one (symlink)? Thanks for the info.
Hard links are not allowed for directories. But even if they were, I
don't see how that would solve anything.
