Currently the utils-build target depends on the standard hdf5 tools being build using the HDF5 thorn. However, when using an external library those tools are not present and 'make' presents the user with an unresolved build dependency error. We should probably remove binaries which are not always built from the make.configuration.defn file:
ALL_UTILS += gif2h5 h52gif h5copy h5debug h5diff h5dump h5import h5jam h5ls h5mkgrp h5perf_serial h5redeploy h5repack h5repart h5stat h5unjam
This would however, prevent binaries built by Cactus from being copied to the exe/NAME/ directory. Any ideas how to solve this? Copy them inside the build script maybe?
