Do these have support for HDF5?  Just last night, I worked up a proper
configuration file to build HDF5 on linuxppc/mklinux.  I've sent the
powerpc-linux config file to NCSA and placed it on my machine's
anonymous ftp site.


I had previously ported HDF4.1 to powerpc linux machines at work.  My
plan is to build an rpm for HDF5 over the Thanksgiving holiday, and then
rebuild R-0.63 with HDF5 support.  Perhaps I'll piggyback off of your
efforts and build rpms when I'm done.
