Just to make sure we are on the same page, your system is Debian Linux; ture?

Did you read the Notes and Warnings document that describes the environment

This line is confusing for me.  I think that this is in the netCDF configure
phase; true?  If so, why is mcfc being referenced, especially given your
comment about using the 'fort77' downloaded from us?

Since the netCDF is a new part of the McIDAS distribution, it may well
be that there are some issues related to Debian Linux that I have
not run into.

This would probably help, yes.
