NetCDF includes it's own cfortran.h, which will be used in its build.

Any cfortran.h on the system will not be used, it will be ignored by
netCDF. The netCDF fortran API looks for, and uses, its own
cfortran.h, not depending on it to be installed, or using it if it is.

This is necessary: some modifications to netCDF's cfortran.h allow it
to be built on even more platforms than the original cfortran.h
