Well how come we are always lead to believe that back links need to come from relevant sites etc?

For every link to be completely relevant, you'd have to link to / get links from all your competitors!
main relevancy is obtained AFAIK from the anchor text or image alt attribute of any link.
I beleive the 'click here' classic example shows this, those two words aren't on the landing document and what relevance could any page have to the words 'click here', yet the adobe doc is no.1 for the search term.
Also G! won't tell you what 'real' value a site is passing on, so it's not a measurable quantity!
Ok copy writters will say that surrounding words may/will play a part in relevancy, but how clever the G!Bot is in this word association is anyones guess.
@ the end of the day , a link is a link is a link, where you can control the relevancy, link text or even landing page, then do what you can, but don't worry about those you can't affect, they are still a valuable 'vote' for your site!

For example, if you have relevant links pointing to your site you'll quite often have links pointing to your site from sites that already attract the type of user who would be interested in what you have to offer. Sometimes even if they don't know it and aren't looking for what you have to offer. So when these real people click through to your site because they find it interests them, you've effectively opened up a new traffic channel that completely bypasses search.
So whether it's good for search engines is basically a non-factor. Because you're obtaining traffic that didn't search for you to begin with.
