    I corrected the code that adds a "current" symbolic link to a binary
    distribution created by CPACK, that I then commented out since CPACK
    doesn't handle symbolic links properly. I am now going to pursue a
    route of adding the current link as a postprocessing step in the
    visit-build-open script. When the bug is fixed in cmake the lines can
    be uncommented. I am not to hopeful since there are several tickets
    in cmake's bug tracker related to this going back about 3 years.
    
    Information on the CPACK bug:
    
    Currently CPACK removes all symbolic links and replaces files with hard
    links. If a symbolic link is to a directory it creates a hard link for
    every file in the directory hierarchy that the link points to. Besides
    being wasteful it can also create an invalid tar file since it only
    stores 100 characters of hard link information in the tar file, which
    we run into with some of our files in the include directory.
