no, its i386

OH.   looking again (having put this aside since last week)

    # yum list hdf5
    hdf5.i386                                1.8.0-1.el5.rf         

looks like I got hdf5 from rpmforge :-/

    # yum remove hdf5
    # yum --disablerepo=rpmforge install octave octave-forge hdf5

has sorted it out.  grrrrrr.    once again epel does not play well with 
others :(((
