[netCDF #EFH-651694]: netcdf-4.1.1 shared library error

Hi Preeti,

> setenv FCFLAGS '-g -fPIC'

I think you don't want to set FCFLAGS_f90.  netCDF uses FFLAGS for the f77
API and FCFLAGS for the f90 API.  FCFLAGS_f90 is an internal variable used
by the configure scrript, but not one you should set.  Have you tried just 
setting FCFLAGS and FFLAGS?

> ~/bin/netcdf-4.1.1/configure --prefix=$HOME/bin/netcdf
> --enable-pnetcdf --disable-dap --enable-shared >& c.log
> make check install >& m.log

Also, you are specifying both -fPIC and --enable-shared, but I think
it would be better to just specify --enable-shared and let the 
configure script determine which compiler flags are needed to support
shared libraries.

Finally, the output from make indicates a missing shared library file:

  /tmp/netcdf/nf_test/.libs/lt-nf_test: error while loading shared libraries: 
libnetcdff.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
  FAIL: nf_test

The file libnetcdff.so.4 should be a symbolic link to
libnetcdff.so.4.0.0, both in the directory /tmp/netcdf/fortran/.libs 

Does that symbolic link and file exist when the failure occurs?  Do
you have another make running in parallel that could be deleting this
file or symbolic link between when they were created and when this
link step is run?  Otherwise, I don't understand why these files would
not be found, as they were created OK earlier in the build.  Do you by
any chance have a LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable set to contain
a different directory where an older version of a shared netcdf
library is stored?

That's all I can think of that might cause this problem.
