Package: libhdf5-serial-dev
Version: 1.8.4-patch1-2
Severity: important

When trying to link a shared library using libhdf5, I receive the
following message:
/usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/libhdf5.a(H5.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 against
`H5_debug_g' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile
with -fPIC
/usr/lib/libhdf5.a: could not read symbols: Bad value

I tried rebuilding the package, specifying -fPIC in DEBOPT, and it
helps. On i386 it is unneeded.
