During the installation of sametime on linux the installer checks where the domino server resists and use this directory information for creationg symbolic links. The result is that links are pointing to somthing like /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/linux/080020/theLink.
This is bad because upgrading the domino server breaks this links and the sametimer server is not runnning anymore. So its better to point to /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/linux/latest/theLink, because the latest directory is anyway available and I think it was introduced to reduce the upgrading problems.

@Christian I agree, there needs to be consistency across products and installation parameters for the products on any given platform.

For this reason, a local Notes client, should not break the ST client build....but I think you are discussing the ST server build here.

So, to be fair to Lotus, ST and Quickr are tied to a specific version of Domino. Thus, as a matter of upgrading a Domino server running ST, you would need to also upgrade the ST install build. So, perhaps, that is why they do it.
