Re: Shared library

I don't understand why one would want to make libnetcdf into a shared
library.
My experience of shared libraries is that they result in fragility.  Good
executable files become useless executable files behind your back, to be
discovered when you just want to run them, not sort out the life history of
the libraries.
Shared libraries make sense when the library is obese.  That is not the
case with netcdf.  I know of only one other reason for shared libraries.
Enlighten me.
