OK, thanks.

The last entries in the makelog you made available show that the
procedure for setting up the environment needed to build McIDAS
described in:

Unidata HomePage
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu

  Software -> McIDAS -> Documentation
  http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/mcidas/#documentation

    User Guide
    http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/mcidas/current/users_guide/toc.html

      Chapter 1 - Installing and Configuring McIDAS-X

        Installing McIDAS-X on Unix or Mac OS X Workstations

          Preparing the mcidas Account
          
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/mcidas/current/users_guide/PreparingthemcidasAccount.html

was not followed before you first attempted to build McIDAS-X.

Also, the screen shot you attached to this inquiry seems to show
that the environment variable McINST_ROOT was setup to be:

McINST_ROOT=/home/mcidas/mcidas

The typical setup (the one that is used in the User Guide) for building using
McIDAS is to unpack the Unidata McIDAS-X distribution in the HOME directory
of the user 'mcidas'.  Presumably this is /home/mcidas in your case.

At this point, I suggest that the simplest thing for you to do is the
following:

- make sure that the Unidata McIDAS-X distribution compressed tar file
  (mcidasx2016.tar.gz), the distribution unpacking script (mcunpack),
  and the ADDE setup script (mcinet2016.sh) are all located in the HOME
  directory of the user 'mcidas', /home/mcidas

- delete the entire /home/mcidas/mcidas directory tree:

  <as 'mcidas'>
  cd /home/mcidas
  rm -rf mcidas

- define McINST_ROOT to be the HOME directory of the user 'mcidas':

  <BASH syntax>

  McINST_ROOT=/home/mcidas

- unpack the distribution

  <as 'mcidas'>
  cd /home/mcidas
  chmod +x mcunpack
  ./mcunpack

- change your shell-specific definition file (.cshrc for C shell, .bash_profile
  for BASH, etc.) so that it will 'source' the contents of the environment
  setting script /home/mcidas/admin/mcidas_env.sh for Bash, SH, etc. or
  /home/mcidas/admin/mcidas_env.csh for Cshell, Tcshell, etc.

  The instructions for how you do this are described in:

  
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/mcidas/current/users_guide/PreparingthemcidasAccount.html

- logoff and then log back on to your machine

  This is to force the 'source'ing of the environment setting script
  so that 'mcidas's environment is properly setup.

  The other thing you could do is 'source' the file directly:

  <as 'mcidas'>
  source admin/mcidas_env.sh        <- if using BASH, for instance

  The reason to follow the instructions in the URL above is so that
  things will be setup properly whenever you login to the 'mcidas'
  account.

- as soon as the environment is properly setup, then you can
  build Unidata McIDAS:

  <as 'mcidas'>
  cd /home/mcidas/mcidas2016/src
  make

  NB: if you want to build the XCD component of Unidata McIDAS-X,
  you would instead run:

  make all

- as soon as the build has completed successfully, you need to install
  Unidata McIDAS-X:

  <still as 'mcidas' in the /home/mcidas/mcidas2016/src directory>
  make install

  OR

  make install.all

After this, you should be able to use Unidata McIDAS-X from the 'mcidas'
account.  Further configuring may be needed, but we can talk about that
after you have built and installed the distribution.

Please let me know when you have performed the steps above, and what
the result of building Unidata McIDAS are.

Cheers,

Tom
