Howdy all!

Sometimes I get these warnings (see below), and I don't really get
what libtool is trying to tell me...

It means that your hdf5 library was originally installed into a different directory path and then the installation was moved/copied to the place it is now. There is a warning since the content of the .la file may no longer be correct. The .la file is just a text file so you can take a look at what is inside and even edit it to fix the installation paths.

It is popular to use DESTDIR to redirect installation to a temporary directory. On some systems, this does not cause a difference but on others the libraries should be relinked to reflect their final location. Libtool's --mode=finish is used to fix up libraries that need to be registered in their final resting place.
