HDF5-related tests fail on OS X with HDF5 1.10.0

I have run the ET tests on OS X. There are [https://build.barrywardell.net/view/EinsteinToolkitMulti/job/EinsteinToolkitMulti-sandbox/MACHINE=osx-10.9.5-macports,label=master/1430/testReport 5 failures]:


Several of the test failures seem to be related to HDF5 (see the output pages from the link above).

For example, I get these warnings:

HDF5-DIAG: Error detected in HDF5 (1.10.0) thread 0:
 #000: H5Dio.c line 170 in H5Dread(): can't read data
   major: Dataset
   minor: Read failed
 #001: H5Dio.c line 418 in H5D__read(): unable to set up type info
   major: Dataset
   minor: Unable to initialize object
 #002: H5Dio.c line 953 in H5D__typeinfo_init(): not a datatype
   major: Invalid arguments to routine
   minor: Inappropriate type
WARNING[L1,P0] (IOHDF5Util): HDF5 call 'H5Dread (dataset, rec_info->hdf5type, H5S_ALL, H5S_ALL, H5P_DEFAULT, data)' returned error code -1

and the diffs say

phi.xl: substantial differences
     significant differences on 165 (out of 165) lines
     maximum absolute difference in column 2 is 1.4849088247045
     maximum relative difference in column 2 is 3.18869248642747

for example, in IOHDF5.test_recover/1procs.

This might be because MacPorts is now using HDF5 1.10.0, and I don't know how much this has been tested with Cactus.
