must /compat/linux stay in root-fs?

On installing my laptop I did the 1st error and assigned only 512 MByte
to the /root partition; now it turned out (2nd error) that somehow all
/compat/linux stuff ended up in the /root partition:

# du -sh /boot /compat
145M    /boot
221M    /compat

and I don't even can install a new kernel because I don't have enough
space in the /root;

Can I safely move the /compat tu /usr/local/compat and do a symlink to
let point /compat --> /usr/local/compat or is there some reason that
linux-f10 ports put all into /compat in root-fs?
