Compiling ROS pcl package

The pcl package depends on libhdf5_cpp.so.
However, Archlinux hdf5 does not include libhdf5_cpp.so. See reason.

Therefore, you will need to download and compile hdf5 with the --enable-cxx configure flag.

Download hdf5 source package.

tar -xjf hdf5-1.8.7.tar.bz2
cd hdf5-1.8.7
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-cxx
make install

A number of other patches are also necessary when compiling with GCC 4.6.
