First of all, install symlinks if it is not installed :
sudo yum install symlinks
and here is the description:
- Description : The symlinks utility performs maintenance on symbolic links.
- Symlinks checks for symlink problems, including dangling symlinks
- which point to nonexistent files. Symlinks can also automatically
- convert absolute symlinks to relative symlinks.
- Install the symlinks package if you need a program for maintaining
- symlinks on your system.
and the help for the same:

Usage: symlinks [-cdorstv] dirlist
Flags: -c == change absolute/messy links to relative
-d == delete dangling links
-o == warn about links across file systems
-r == recurse into subdirs
-s == shorten lengthy links (displayed in output only when -c not specified)
