[netCDF #OUH-534551]: Test ftst_vars4 failing on Solaris 10, GCC 4.2

Hi Geoff,

Unfortunately, we no longer have a Sparc v9 platform on which to test or debug
this problem, so I have to rely on users to test it.  Also, the developer who
wrote this test code for the F77 API has taken another position, so rewriting
the test is a problem.

When it's convenient, could you try the following patch instead and let us know
if it still executes a STOP?  This works fine on our Linux x86_64 platforms:
