     I really cannot understand the above comments, and I searched
in google, get nothing usefull information about it.
I just used "--disable-debug" and "--disable-trace" , I think this
will decrease the exe size and increase speed.

     Can anyone explain the "--enable-debug" mean? Or are there any
disadvantages when disable it.
     Thanks for any reply.

  The debug configure option does two things: it turns on the compilers
debugging flag ("-g" usually) and it enables some extra internal
consistency checking in the HDF5 library. Generally speaking,
disabling it will make the executable size smaller and increase speed
(a little), yes.
