Well, I wonder if it once was too full and so they moved it somewhere
and either intended but failed to make a link or somehow the link
got overwritten so it can't find the stuff.

In otherwords, all the files and directory structure had been 
moved somewhere and there should be a link to it of the sort:
  ln -s /some/other/place /usr
but the link is missing.

If so, you just need to find out where it got put and
make the link for it.

Just one guess,
