Omnibus/Debian(Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) not symlinking /opt/<project>/embedded/bin

In my Omnibus package, I uncommented the line in the ‘makeselfinst’ file to symlink my /opt etc bin directory:

You may want to symlink your packages bin files into /usr/bin

ln -sf $DEST_DIR/embedded/bin/rumm /usr/bin || error_exit “Cannot link rumm to /usr/bin”

It creates the symlink fine in OSX, but in Ubuntu it doesn’t create the symlink.
