I am not aware of any effort to package hdf5 at this point. I had a
quick look, and it uses the autotools, so you could use the
autotools-package infrastructure in Buildroot to create a package for
hdf5, it should be fairly straightforward.
Note that the dependencies on zlib and szip are optional, according to
If you create a package for hdf5 and/or szip, please remember to submit
them upstream. This has several benefits: people with a strong
Buildroot expertise will review your changes and point to potential
issues/mistakes, and others will be able to benefit from the work
