Sorry, I haven't, but it should be roughly the same procedure. I'll write up
some instructions.

One thing with HDF5 was that I believe I had to compile i386 and x86_64
binaries on an Intel Mac and ppc/ppc64 on a PowerPC Mac, there was some issue
with cross-compiling that I never quite got sorted out. It may compile a
binary which it then wants to actually *run* for another step of the build
process. Rosetta should take care of this on Intel but the machine I was
sitting in front of was a G5, and the Intel build on that machine failed 
miserably, so I logged in remotely to an Intel Mac. I will try compiling all
4 on an Intel machine and see if that works.
