Regarding the crazy symlinks, blame it on cPanel and the Linux/BSD/Unix community disagreeing on where things should be located.
cPanel: I would rather not have some half-dozen partitions, and I don't trust resizing them on a mounted volume. As a result, I have to keep large directories under the largest partition and create symlinks. So, only /usr/local -> /home/local is my doing ;-)
Linux/BSD/Unix: /usr, /usr/local, /home, /opt, /etc, (/var/local is a new one to me)... you know the story. BTW, I think Mac OSX wins the prize for the most confusing layout among the Unixes.
To help cut through the confusion, I create "/*root" symlinks in the root directory, e.g., /httpdroot.
