Failure to build h5check on datura

When building the Einstein Toolkit thornlist on Datura, the utilities fail to build with the error:

make[1]: No rule to make target /Users/barry/Research/Cactus/AEI/exe/sim/h5check', needed byutils'. Stop. make[1]: Waiting for unfinished jobs.... cc1plus: warning: command line option '-std=c99' is valid for C/ObjC but not for C++ [enabled by default] make: *** [sim-utils] Error 2

datura.cfg has

HDF5_DIR = /cluster/hdf5/SL6/1.8.7-intel11.1.072all

Any ideas what might cause this problem?

    This (and others) are utilities that are built by thorn HDF5 if it builds the bundled HDF5 library. I guess it should not try to do so if the bundled HDF5 library is not built.

    One way to implement this is to remember in a configuration variable whether the bundled HDF5 library has been built, and if not so, to not copy these files from the HDF5 install directory into the Cactus utility directory.

    Yes, a fresh build of the ET on Datura is now successful, including the utilities.
