Stop. Do not continue. Stop what you are doing. Cease "building." You are wasting your time. Your effort. Your energy.

Read the FAQ. In particular, read FAQ 15. To be specific, read FAQ 15.4.6. Now, go back and start at the beginning of FAQ 15. Now, READ IT AGAIN.


You cannot easily remove /usr or "move" it. You cannot do so while the system is running. It is possible to do so, but you have not, in your questions, shown that you have the *nix administration skills to do so. A complete reinstallation is advised. You will not have to "build" anything to do so.

I recommend that as a complete beginner, you start with ONE SINGLE BIG FILESYSTEM, "/". Don't bother setting up separate partitions until you have learned how to install, manage, and use the OS.

Keep swap space. The general recommendation is twice the size of your RAM, unless you have special requirements.
