Yuck, no.

Better would be something like this:

ls -i $potential_problems | 
	perl -ne '
		($inode, $name)= split;
		die "hard link between $name and $in_use{$inode}
please replace this hard link with a symbolic link or an independent file
before installing smartlist\n"
			if $in_use{$inode};
		$in_use{$inode}= $name;
