We have never seen this error before.

H5 is in the ncsa.hdf.hdf5lib package distributed with VisAD. The only
thing I can think of is that visad.util occurs before ncsa.hdf.hdf5lib
in the list of packages in the VisAD Makefile, and that you are using a
Java compiler that will not automaticaly try to compile imported
classes that are not already compiled. What compiler are you using?
