$ ls -l /etc/localtime
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  root  40 Jun  3 15:22 /etc/localtime
-> ../usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Louisville

Yes. It is relative to the place where the link will be
stored. So, when /etc/localtime is accessed, it will
point to ../usr[...] from its location. Don't worry.
Jesse and i have both goofed on ln's syntax :)
