[slurm-users] RHEL8 support - Missing Symbols in SelectType libraries

I spoke too soon.

While I can successfully build/run slurmctld, slurmd is failing because 
ALL of the SelectType libraries are missing symbols.

Example from select_cons_tres.so:

/*# slurmd*//*
*//*slurmd: error: plugin_load_from_file: 
/usr/lib64/slurm/select_cons_tres.so: undefined symbol: 
*//*slurmd: error: Couldn't load specified plugin name for 
select/cons_tres: Dlopen of plugin file failed*//*
*//*slurmd: fatal: Can't find plugin for select/cons_tres*//*

/*# nm -D /usr/lib64/slurm/libslurmfull.so|grep powercap_*//*
*//*000000000010f7b8 T slurm_free_powercap_info_msg*//*
*//*0000000000060060 T slurm_print_powercap_info_msg*/

So, sure enough powercap_get_cluster_current_cap is not in there.

Methinks the linking needs examined.
