But I'm pretty sure that I didn't move any library.

Also, I believe that library is a static library anyway, so what

What may have happened in that the HDF5 library was installed in two

When I installed the HDF5 library and I didn't use DESTDIR, just the
--prefix option to configure.

Thanks for the help!
