It will override it. However, There is a "but" to the idea:

Link Category admin management is NOT controlled by the generic taxonomy  
interface; I'll change that over in 3.1 most likely.

So you can visit edit-tags.php?taxonomy=link_category and you should be  
presented with a hierarchical category page.

The Links addition page may not be coded to expect a hierarchical taxonomy  
either, so it may be displayed as a flat list..
