The compat directory entry in root usually is a symlink
to /usr/compat. It is created by sysinstall.
/usr/src/usr.sbin/sysinstall/install.c around line 860:
vsystem("ln -s usr/compat /compat");
So it should be there when you've been using sysinstall
for system installation. If you've used a different tool
(or "no tool"), it may be the reason why it is missing.
