When compiling Cactus on Mac OS using HDF5 provided by fink, compilation of the Cactus executable succeeds, but one of the utilities fails to build.

There is no h5fc installed on the system. I have not yet figured out why it would not be installed by fink.

    h5fc is a Fortran compiler wrappers. We don't need the compiler wrappers since we don't expect to use them with Cactus -- Cactus has its own build system.

    I have disabled the compiler wrappers.
