Linux apps and /mnt - FreeBSD

I just mounted a device at /mnt/t and tried to access a file from linux realplayer. It couldn't see anything under /mnt at all, it seems that it's actually seeing /compat/linux/mnt. Why does /compat/linux/mnt exist? Is there some serious problem of having linux apps see /mnt (like they see the real /home, and any non-standard top-level directories)? An what's the best way to handle this?...

    Default Linux apps and /mnt

    I just mounted a device at /mnt/t and tried to access a file from linux
    realplayer. It couldn't see anything under /mnt at all, it seems that it's
    actually seeing /compat/linux/mnt.

    Why does /compat/linux/mnt exist? Is there some serious problem of having
    linux apps see /mnt (like they see the real /home, and any non-standard
    top-level directories)? An what's the best way to handle this?

    Most likely it's because one of the rpms making up linux_base creates
    it. Just rmdir it.
