We have local builds of HDF5 running fine on POWER8LE but we started over with 
a more “standard” Linux configure (i.e. don’t do anything special for POWER). 
Our codes are using the libraries just fine. In the end we got this working for 
GNU and XL compilers but this was on RHEL7.2.

I don’t seem to be able to find your configure in the links you have posted.
