Using "sudo make install" was correct.  You usually want to install the netCDF
libraries, include files, and programs in a place where other programs and 
users can make use of them.

What problems do other programs that depend on netCDF develop?  For example,
do such programs depend on a shared netCDF library that you have overwritten
with the new installation?  In that case, you may have to recompile and relink
the programs to use the new libraries.  This could be necessary if, for example,
the new libraries were compiled using a different programming model than the 
libraries, for example 64-bit pointers instead of 32-bit pointers.
