Too many levels of symbolic links

I've been having an issue with my jailbroken Kindle 4 NT. I'm trying to install java, and I've downloading a package, extracted it, etc., and I'm stuck on symlinking the 'java' file in my package to /bin. I symlink it, but then when I try to run 'java' it says 'Too many levels of symbolic links.' I've ran ls -l on my symlink, and it just says that it leads to /mnt/us/jre/bin/java, which is where I've installed java. How can one symlink be too many levels? Any ideas?

Why?
Just add /mnt/us/jre/bin to your path variable.
As in:
export PATH=/mnt/us/jre/bin:$PATH
