So when you run the command

  /bin/mkdir /gsb6

you don't get an error?  

Typically "make install" is run as super-user, using the "sudo make install",
but if you really have permissions to make arbitrary directories at the root 
level of your directory tree, you wouldn't need to use sudo.  Otherwise, you
may have to specidy an absolute pathname for where you really want to install
netCDF using the "--prefix=" option to configure, after running "make clean".
Then you would need to rerun "make check" and "sudo make install".
