All builds I've tested (up to 1.8.17 and 1.10.0-patch1) segfault when being built on Linux with icc and ifortran 16.0.3. Any idea what's going on? gcc and gfortran builds build correctly.
UPDATE: Must be related to either ifort 16 or Linux kernel 4.*. When built with ifort 17 and kernel 3.19.0-68, build completed and passed all tests.
When I get back to the office I'll test ifort 17 with Linux kernel 4.* and report back the known culprit.
UPDATE 2: Seems to be an issue with ifort 16.0.3. The ifort 17 package worked for both Linux kernels 3 and 4. HDF5 1.8.17 along with zlib and szip compiled and run correctly.
