Thanks, Ian.

Tried the test data. Same error/failure.

I just checked out the git version of h5mma; the README seems mostly
about the use of the utility in general, rather than installation
instructions (I'm thinking of things like the prefix chosen at
configuration stage). Should I build directly in the
/Library/Mathematica/Applications directory (sounds wrong), or buld
locally and move the result?
