Oddities in hdf5 library distribution.

Hi folks

while trying to package Debian hdf5 distributed libraries, moving from 1.6
to the new 1.8 series, I found some disappointing issues:

* While the the libhdf5 soname version is now correctly upgraded at every(?)
  new release both fortran and c++ sonames are stalling to 0:0:0, and the building system
  has no sign of managing a possible version changes in those libs (lt_vers.am
  declares only versions for libhdf5).
* MPI flavors use the same names of serial libraries, which prevents installing
  and using both serial and MPI flavors of the libraries on the same system.
  Other libraries provide a _mpi suffixes for MPI-enabled libraries to allow that.
