In order to build the ldm-mcidas decoders from source, you will have
had to install the LDM and netCDF library and header files.  The netCDF
is easy since it comes bundled with McIDAS-X; the LDM you would have
had to install yourself.

If the LDM and netCDF were installed in non-standard locations (i.e.
locations not anticipated by the configure script that setups up the
ldm=mcidas Makefiles), you would have had to define the LD_NETCDF,
LD_LDM, etc. environment variables to point to the locations.  This is
described in the INSTALL document that comes with the ldm-mcidas source

I see from the compilation listing you attached that the build failed
when attempting to link against the LDM library, -lldm.  If you do have
the LDM installed, then this means that your environment variable(s)
relating to the LDM are incorrect or that the LDM library is not
readable by the user that is trying to build the ldm-mcidas decoders.
If you find the problem and want to try again, remember to do a 'make
distclean' to wipe out the config.cache file in the src directory.

Alternatively, you could grab a binary distribution of the decoders and
install those.  We make binaries available for a select set of
platforms.  Please check out subdirectories of pub/binary of anonymous
FTP on our FTP server, ftp.unidata.ucar.edu.  It is likely that there
is a binarly ldm-mcidas distribution for the platform you are running
