These patches aren't Debian-specific. They help when HDF5 is installed
into a non standard path.

I don't have any knowledge about octave modules. What I can say for sure
is that the octave binary packages will be tied to the serial version of
HDF5. But nothing should prevent you to link a module against a parallel
version of the library. Both instances can coexist into the same
application now.
