[netcdf-hdf] convert_hdfeos5 build problems on Ubuntu

Hi All,

As far as I can tell from web-searches, convert_hdfeos5 is the
HDF-recommended/supported way to convert HDF5-EOS files to netCDF4.
(It's unclear whether/how convert_hdfeos5 differs from 'h4toh5 -eos
-nc4strict'. I want to use whichever method HDF Group
recommends/supports, though I would actually settle to get either
working.)  So I grabbed the latest version, eos52nc4-1.1 and...

On my Ubuntu 11.04 Natty x86_64 system with all software installed
from the Ubuntu repositories, configuring convert_hdfeos5 fails (below).

The error message is not helpful.
How can I build convert_hdfeos5 on Ubuntu?
Does anyone have Debian/Ubuntu packages for convert_hdfeos5 or h4toh5?

Any guidance apreciated,
Charlie
