The best way is not to use links at all but put the right bin path at
the beginning of your PATH. That way you can easily switch between
several TL versions. For instance, you can do

PATH=/usr/local/share/texlive/2009/bin/i386-linux:$PATH pdftex ...

just to test something with pdftex from TL 2009 but still keep TL 2008
for your regular work.
