Currently hdf5 does not provide an MPI version installable with the serial
one, due to upstream bad habit of using the same name and sonames for all
versions (serial,parallel and so on). So you have to use the serial version.
One possibility would be providing parallel versions for all buildable
chains of tools, as an alternative, but it would be very complicated.
See #591346 for information about this issue and try to convince upstream
to support at least properly parallel flavors.
