It still fails to be for me in the python part:

The attached patch fixes that for me, but it's more of a hack, of

I had another look, and libhdf5-dev is shipping a hdf5-serial.pc
pkg-config file, which gets installed as hdf5.pc via the alternatives

So probably for CMake the easiest way would be to use pkg-config for
HDF5, unless that .pc file is a Debian addition and not generally
