I think it is the following point from the mod_rewrite documentation:

  Notice! To enable the rewriting engine for per-directory configuration files
  you need to set ``RewriteEngine On'' in these files and ``Option
  FollowSymLinks'' enabled. If your administrator has disabled override of
  FollowSymLinks for a user's directory, then you cannot use the rewriting
  engine. This restriction is needed for security reasons.
