[netCDF #ROQ-388981]: configure is slow

Howdy Christopher!

Starting in version 4.2, the C++ and Fortran APIs will no longer be part of the 
C API distribution. As a result the configure is a lot shorter and quicker.

Another way to speed it up is to use the -C option (see the --help option for 
more info.)
