[netCDF #SBY-332951]: Netcdf and Matlab: need ncdump

On Mac OS X, you can also use the fink system or the macports system 
to install a recent version of netCDF that includes ncdump.  Either
macports or fink provides an easy way to install the binary library
and utilities without building from source.

However building from source on Mac OS X is also fairly quick, especially
if you don't need the a Fortran API, which is the case if you're only
after ncdump.  In that case you can just get the most recent source 


unpack it, and build and install it with these instructions:
