Compiling HDF5-1.8.17 with Intel-15.0.6 and Intel-MPI-5.0.6

Step 1: Preparing the prerequisites

$ vim .bashrc
source /usr/local/intel_2015/bin/compilervars.sh intel64
source /usr/local/intel_2015/impi/5.0.3.049/bin64/mpivars.sh intel64
source /usr/local/intel_2015/mkl/bin/mklvars.sh intel64
export CC=icc
export CXX=icpc
export F77=ifort
export MPICC=mpicc
export MPICXX=mpiicpc
export CFLAGS="-O3 -xHost -fno-alias -align"
export FFLAGS="-O3 -xHost -fno-alias -align"
export CXXFLAGS="-O3 -xHost -fno-alias -align"
export FFlags="-I/usr/local/intel_2015/impi/5.0.3.049/include64 -L/usr/local/intel_2015/impi/5.0.3.049/lib64"

Step 2: Compile zlib-1

See Compile zlib-1.2.8 with Intel-15.0.6

Step 3: Configure the HDF5

$ tar -zxvf hdf5-1.8.17.tar.gz
$ cd hdf5-1.8.17
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/hdf5-1.8.17 --enable-fortran --enable-cxx
$ make
$ make check
$ make install

Compile zlib-1.2.8 with Intel-15.0.6

Step 1: Download the zlib from HDF5 (https://support.hdfgroup.org/HDF5/release/obtain5.html)
In your .bashrc, you can

source /usr/local/intel_2015/bin/compilervars.sh intel64
source /usr/local/intel_2015/impi/5.0.3.049/bin64/mpivars.sh intel64
source /usr/local/intel_2015/mkl/bin/mklvars.sh intel64
export CC=icc
export CFLAGS='-O3 -xHost -ip'

At your command prompt

$ tar -zxvf zlib-1.2.8.tar.gz
$ cd zlib-1.2.8
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/zlib-1.2.7
$ make
$ make check
$ make install
