I'm not very sure about this, but I think:
This makes sense only during installation, when the future root filesystem
is under /target. After installation is finished, the /target directory
does not exist (in the regular root filesystem - unless you explicitly
made one during installation with 'mkdir /target/target').
ln -s yak/var var

It might work if it looks like this:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Jul 9 16:05 /target/var -> yak/var
I hope for you it works then.
