hdf5_recombiner could use version 1.6 of hdf5 API

The attached patch would make hdf5_recombiner compile with version 1.6 of the HDF5 API, similar to thorns and other tools. It would be nice to apply this also to the ET_2011_10 branch of the ET.

    HDF5 1.8 was released three years ago, and Cactus can build its enclosed HDF5. Are you really still encountering systems where only HDF5 1.6 is available?

    Okay to apply.

    Yes there are unfortunately still systems where the (system default) hdf5 installation is 1.6. Eg. ranger and of course the broken Debian hdf5 headers in recent versions of Debian.
