HDF 4.2.7-patch1 corrects a modification that caused configure
to break when using a compiler that contained a '-' in its name.
The change, introduced in HDF 4.2.6, was intended to simplify
the lines of the configure output that report compiler versions.
This patch reverses that change.
There is NO NEED to install this patch if you are currently
using HDF 4.2.7 successfully.
