[netCDF #AJV-500600]: Missing -ldl library when using hdf5-1.8.11 with netcdf-4.3.0 and configure

It's definitely supported, and we've been doing our testing with HDF5-1.8.11 
since their
first pre-release.  I didn't notice the problem until I started doing some 
testing, and I think it only occurs when linking with parallel hdf5-1.8.11.  

I documented it here:


but I have never determined why "-ldl" is necessary.  It might be a good 
question for
the HDF Group, so I'm CC:ing them on this response.
