Where is your test binary?  At the time you run this ln command, there 
*should* be one in /bin and one in /tools.  Is it still in /usr/bin?

One of the mv commands (the one after the one that complained to you) is 
this:

mv /usr/bin/{sleep,stty,su,test,touch,true,uname} /bin

which moves test from /usr/bin into /bin.
