I've checked on 9.0-RC2 and the link is there, but my installs were
upgraded from 8.2-RELEASE, so you may have a point there. I'll check on
a clean 9.0-RC3 install shortly and report findings.

If it happens that 9.0 installs into /compat, we should either add this
to the documentation or file a PR so that either the linux_base package
or bsdinstall creates the link.
But from the current PR it seems the OP was using 8.2-RELEASE which
should not exhibit this.
