[DebianGIS] Package of hdf-1.8.3, first try


I'm eager to build a debian/ubuntu package of netcdf4 which requires hdf-1.8.3. I've seen that it is on the todo list of this group, but without explicit roadmap, so I gave it a try to build a hdf5-package:


It was generated from the 1.6.5 debian package with uscan, and some smaller changes to get hdf5 to build. The biggest change I introduce is to name the library to the ABI version rather than the hdf package version. hdf5 tries uses libtool and tries to be ABI compatible (currently at library version 6) so I don't see a reason why the hdf5 packages should still force the correct version number.

I have tested the package under hardy and debian 5.0.1. lintian gives some complaints about man-page and the ABI-VERSION conflicts, but otherwise it seems to work.

I include the orig.tar.gz since the official hdf5_1.8.3.tar.gz contains a file twice (detype_files.txt), which conflicts with debuild 'tar -xkf'.

Best regards,
