hdf5 compiler wrappers require static libraries
Last modified: 2015-10-02 09:25:56 EDT
Description of problem:
The compiler wrappers attempt to link with the static libraries even if they are not installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install hdf5, hdf5-devel, and maybe hdf5-openmpi(-devel).
2. Do _not_ install hdf5-static or hdf5-openmpi-static.
3. Run h5cc or h5pcc on a file (e.g., one of the examples from /usr/share/hdf5_examples).
gcc: error: /usr/lib64/libhdf5_hl.a: No such file or directory
gcc: error: /usr/lib64/libhdf5.a: No such file or directory
gcc: error: /usr/lib64/openmpi/lib/libhdf5_hl.a: No such file or directory
gcc: error: /usr/lib64/openmpi/lib/libhdf5.a: No such file or directory
Compile should complete without issue using shared library.
I am aware that there's an environment variable HDF5_USE_SHLIB, but this really should just be automatic; especially since Fedora's default stance is shared-not-static, it should definitely work with static libraries installed.

Oops, that should say *without*.
Thanks for the report. I've got a fix, but I'm currently only planning on releasing for F23+ unless some other fixes need to be backported to F22.
