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?
