I know the HDFgroup officially stop supporting Solaris x86 as of Feb 2001, but your builds kept going well past that time.  Did it get to the point where it was difficult or impossible to build?  For what its worth, I can't even get the last version you built for OpenCSW to build on my system.

I don’t quite get how the shared library naming works for this library:
the existing HDF5 1.8.7 has the shared libraries

The latest version from the 1.8 branch is 1.8.19 and that one produces

The latest version 1.10.1 produces
These libraries are built regardless whet API version I specify with

If you can tell me what the best for packaging would be I can provide the packages.

Best regards
