I got used to Fedora having Jasper (needed for GRIB2) and netCDF
libraries in the extras RPM repository. But I guess you can't rely on
that forever. I also use a bastardized version of libjpg to handle
European LRIT data but I compile and link that in myself.
CentOS doesn't come with jasper or netCDF so I create RPM files from
the source (install source from RPM and run rpmbuild) and install that
for the various OS flavors. Do you want the RPM files?
