[netCDF #XEN-661854]: netCDF binaries for windows 64bit

Currently we do not have precompiled binaries for Windows, but we have
recently hired a developer to improve netCDF Windows support. His initial
focus will be helping to improve netCDF support for Windows platforms. We
hope to report success in making netCDF more useful to Windows users and
developers over the next few months.
In the meantime, maybe this set of instructions from ParaTools will help:
Alternatively, we have a few other suggestions at the end of this FAQ answer:
