[netCDF #QAA-118175]: Netcdf 4.0.1 on Centos 5.1 x64 fails some tests

No, the problem is that you used --enable-cxx-4 as a configure option, which 
specified
building and testing the experimental C++ API for netCDF-4.  That API still has 
some problems
in the 4.0.1 release.  It works better in the current 4.1.1 release, but is 
still relatively
untested.  It will continue to mature over the next few months, but unless you 
need it or
want to help with testing and debugging it, I recommend configuring without the 
optional
--enable-netcdf-4 option.  We are working with an external developer (Lynton 
Appel, CCFE)
who contributed the cxx-4 API sources, and will announce to the netcdfgroup 
mailing list
when that API is ready for general use.
