Gutentag Peer-Joachim!

First, a couple of comments about your HDF5 build. The HDF5 fortran API is not 
used by netCDF - all calls to HDF5 are directly to the HDF5 C API, even if you 
are using the netCDF F90 API. So the way that the HDF5 fortran API is built (or 
if it is built at all) does not matter to netCDF.

But I notice you don't specify --with-zlib=/some/location when building HDF5. 
If I don't do this, the netCDF build doesn't work for me, because the zlib 
functions of HDF5 are not present. How come this doesn't happen to you?

Why are you specifying the prefix twice, and --with-hdf5= not at all? Could 
this be a typo?

This is strange. Can you try building like this, and tell me if it works?

./configure --with-hdf5=/some/where --enable-logging --disable-cxx && make check

Set your CC, FC, and F77 environment variables to the names of your compilers. 
Don't see anything in CPPFLAGS. Let's see if that works.

Thanks,

Ed
