But I don't need the serial version at all. The only reason I wan't to install
HDF4 on this machine is to have the MPI IO available in netCDF4, and since it 
is implemented via HDF4 I need an MPI-enabled HDF4 install.

If I understand correctly, this bug refers to a hdf-mpi/hdf-serial conflict,
so again: my issue if kind of different.
