I noticed this incongruity before and decided to leave it as it is, because it's more of an upstream choice and the only drawback is purely cosmetic. On the contrary I found changing the library name much more disruptive on the end user side for those who don't rely on h5*c scripts: it means having different build scripts depending on the distro, instead of just setting some '-I' and '-L' options through xxFLAGS. Hence I'd prefer not to change it. Thanks, _g.
