I don't have an answer to your question and I do not seek to duplicate the error.  Why install SL in /usr/local anyway?  The /opt is there for a reason; a 'link' from /usr/local/bin to /opt would suffice.  Put /opt in your PATH or put the executable of SL in your PATH.  I don't mean to admonish you for poor system and application management, but that's what happens when people refuse to follow standards and conventions.  Insofar as back-up or your lack of any recent copy - a good back-up methodology can be run automatically from cron - and every evening.  In the same time it takes to create a symbolic link you could have written a cron job.  RTFM.
