trying to install octave from epel onto centos 5.2, and getting 
dependency errors.  only place I could find this RPM was in epel, which 
I 'thought' ran on native rhel5/centos5 without requiring any other 
repos, but I guess I'm wrong?!?

google tells me libhdf5 is some sot of 'heirarchial data format' 
library, whatever that means.
