Hi Russell,

Sorry it's taken so long to respond to your support request.
> Package Version: 4.1.1

> Can you please help.
> Thanks
> My commands are:

The error message refers to line 141 of ncgen/ncgen.h:
  "ncgen.h", line 141.1: 1506-046 (S) Syntax error.
  "ncgen.h", line 141.15: 1506-344 (S) Member unlimitedsize has already been 
defined on line 139 of "ncgen.h".

which is

  //    size_t  unlimitedsize; /* computed unlimited size  */

This is a bug in ncgen.h.  It was intended to be a commented-out
statement, but it used the C++/C99 comment syntax "//".  Please just
delete this statement from the ncgen.h file and continue by invoking
"make check" from the top level.  The bug has been fixed in more
recent beta releases and the upcoming 4.1.2 version.
