Mhmm, after reading what anthraxx wrote I realized the mistake I made in not 
putting it in makedepends as well. It's like yes, the package will compile 
without it but the support will be missing and if you install hdf5 _after_ 
installing the package you still don't get the hdf5 support (since you needed to 
have hdf5 installed before compiling to enable it in the first place).
