this morning I downloaded TL2015 in pretest and used tl-install,
with the following set-up

 <D> directories:
   TEXDIR (the main TeX directory):

(I use this repertory because I excluded Downloads from Time Machine 
archival, this is Mac OS X)

   TEXMFLOCAL (directory for site-wide local files):
   ... more config ...

I discover now in my 


a symlink

texmf-local -> ../../../../../../../usr/local/texlive/texmf-local

it is from today at 8:58 local time.

I wonder the meaning of this and if it is normal part of the tl-install
