Greetings Roger, The test is trying to contact the test.opendap.org dods server, which can be a unavailable sometimes; however, It's looks as though the dods server has been down for days. Until the dods test server returns, try using the --disable-dap-remote-tests flag when you run configure...this will skip the test causing the failure, but continue testing the rest of your install.
