Installing HDF5 on Mac OSX

Hi,

I would like some advice on how to install HDF5 on a Mac with PGI 10.8. So far I have tried hdf5-1.6.7 and hdf5-1.8.3 and hdf5-1.8.5 with PGI 10.8 with varying degrees of failure.

I have a trial PGI license with the key set up properly, and have successfully compiled HDF5 on linux many times.

The configure part works, but make fails.

Any advice please?

Thanks,
Sean

./configure --prefix=/opt/hdf5-1.8.5pgi --enable-fortran --enable-cxx --with-default-api-version=v16 --disable-shared --with-zlib=/opt/local/lib
make

error:

PGC-S-0260-sigsetjmp is not an argument (H5detect.c: 76)

The configuration of hdf5 does not support PGI compilers on Mac OS X. I am not really sure it will work if it passes the make phase. I will search to see if there is a workaround.
