HDF5 1.8.12 test is segfaulting with ifort 14.0.1

HDF5 1.8.12 test is segfaulting with ifort 14.0.1

Dear All

HDF5 1.8.12 segfault with ifort 14.0.1 (worked fine with 13.1.2). The tests fortranlib_test_F03 (segfault see bellow) and fortranlib_test (not shown) dont work properly.

The conf and compilation steps are:

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

I have had nothing but problems with hdf5 1.8.x compile with the 14.x versions of ifort.  My problems vary from test-cases never finishing and exhausting memory to corrupt output in production code.  There is a thread a month or two old that goes into a bit more detail, but never received much attention.  I've gone back to gfortran until ifort can remember how to compile hdf5.

This was  probably caused by this bug in the Intel Fortran compiler:


which they fixed. But alas, Version 15.0 again breaks HDF5 when the --enable-fortran2003 option is specified...*sigh*.

I'll update the 15.0 situation in another thread.
