When GeneralSolaris testcase follows symbolic link to pick up an 
existing file or directory for testing, it will fail the assertion in 
check()method because the file path canonicalization process will result 
in the real path not a path containing symbolic link. I enforce this 
test not to use any symbolic link as a testing file ordirectory to avoid 
this problem. Please help review my fix. Thanks!
