>From /etc/pacman.conf:

CacheDir    = /drawer/system/pacman/cache/pacman/pkg/

This is a convenient place to me as my root system is a not too large
SSD. When doing some cleaning on my machines, I found this:

$ ls -al /drawer/system
lrwxrwxrwx  1 gabx users   34 Aug 12 21:10 pacman ->

Pacman is working like a charm, but I would like to understand why abd
by what the pacman directory is a symlink to a volatile dir?

Thank you for any hints on how investigate.
