I think one of us will get to uploading a fixed octave package soon,
there are other pending changes in git, and we don't want to hold up
the transition.

I haven't tested building octave rdeps with these patches, but I
assume that's the reason for hdf5-mkoctfile.patch right?. I'm curious
if the change to LDFLAGS is really necessary in the general case, or
is it only there for the one or two packages that intentionally link
to hdf5 themselves? I would think only the include path would be
required for almost all uses of mkoctfile, in which case it could look
more like mkoctfile-mpi.diff (which I think we can actually drop once
the hdf5 transition is done).

Thanks for your patience and your work on this transition,
