I think linkgit:gitignore[5] is enough. linkgit:gitrepository-layout[5]
is a very general documentation, it's not clear to the reader which part
is intended to be read in complement to git-clean, and indeed, the
relevant information is already in linkgit:gitignore[5]. Same for
core.excludesfile which is already documented in linkgit:gitignore[5].

Otherwise, I suspect we'll end-up having the transitive closure of SEE
ALSO in each manpage ...
