I pushed http://hg.octave.org/mxe-octave/rev/1dc44d7a2103, which also uses the version field for the subdir.

Patch looks good to me. I guess The HDF Group reorganized their web site.

Might be nice to make the "hdf5-1.8" part be derived from the VERSION field so it doesn't have to be updated when the MAJOR.MINOR version changes to 1.10.

The automatic download for hdf5 fails with error 404: not found.
The attached patch fixes that issue for me.
CC'ing John Donoghue: Maybe you also want to update to 1.8.19 or 1.10.1?
