There are a number of things to consider before compiling.
What compression you'll use: zlib or szlib
Will you program parallel hdf on parallel file systems (e.g. GPFS, lustre, etc.). If so which and which MPI
Will you use c++. Will you use fortran. python. And separately java
Does the rest of your build need the -fPIC compiler flag(I'm unfamiliar with PGI)
after unzipping 1.8.5 in its directory at the command line type:
to see more options.
If you aren't as command line oriented, make a little build script (i.e. build hdf5.sh with a text editor such as gedit on your system) in the 1.8.5 directory and experiment with build in it (this script is the same as command line but keeps them where you can modify and remember). If you have a linux file browser browsed to this 1.8.5 folder and you right click and set the permissions to execute you can then just double click every time you want to attempt another build. The paths to zlib and openmpi are dependency libraries I chose for my build of hdf5. And of course the ./release_docs of hdf5 are many more examples for different systems and compilers
