This note is to kick off a discussion of how netcdf should configure, in
order to discover hdf5.
The current setup (as of alpha 2) uses h5cc.
I.e., HDF 5 is installed, then in the netcdf4 directory, you
1. set CC to h5cc or h5pc
2. ./configure --enable-netcdf-4 [--enable-parallel] [...]
We have encountered problems, apparently due to subtle interactions of
h5cc and automake's generated makefiles.
I libtoolized netcdf4, which fixed some, but not all, of the problems
We need to come up with some way to reliably build netCDF4.
One suggestion has been to abandon h5cc/h5pcc, substituting other
of discovering which HDF5 to use, what compilers and paths should be
I pose now pose the question:
What is the recommended approach?
