Symbolic links to data not showing up in Hyrax 1.14.0 RPMs on CentOS 7

Description

Per Kent Yang <myang6@hdfgroup.org>, install of Hyrax 1.14.0 RPMs on CentOS 7 found that symbolic links don’t work, in spite of changing

BES.Catalog.catalog.FollowSymLinks=No
To
BES.Catalog.catalog.FollowSymLinks=Yes

And, from
BES.FollowSymLinks=No

To
BES.FollowSymLinks=Yes

Result: don’t see the symbolically linked served files.

However, if libdap and bes are built from from the source code can see the symbolically linked served files.

Per James, the problem is not the RPM packages per se, it is whether the BES is ‘configured’ using --enable-developer or not. If not, FollowSymLinks does not work. If ‘configure’ is run using --enable-developer, it will work.
