I wouldn't say that HDF5 it is very difficult to build/install.  In fact, it 
is a matter of "./configure; make install" --and that only if there is not a 
binary package available for your SO, which is usually the case.  It is just 
that it is another dependency to add to numpy/scipy ...and a *big* one.
