I'll try writing things up later this week, but for the lib-packages I want
to use the actual libnames:
libdf
libmfdf
I guess it is probably also a good idea to rename the -dev package.

I can surely use some help or feedback on the idea. What would be most
helpful is to have this tested by people who actually use netcdf and hdf4
together in one of the tools which rely on the current libhdf4. Such a test
could in fact already happen by linking both libhdf4-alt and netcdf rather
than libhdf4.
