It's only an example of where the header files (such as hdf5.h and zlib.h) 
for libraries on which netCDF-4 depends might have been installed.

If you are building with netCDF-4 capabilities, such as compression and the
enhanced netCDF-4 data model, you have to first install zlib and HDF5 and set 
CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS to point to include and library directories where HDF5 
was installed.

If you want to build with only netCDF-3 interfaces and capabilities (which are
sufficient for reading most netCDF data in current archives), then you don't 
need to install HDF5 or zlib first, and you don't need to specify directories
to configure for where they were installed.

Here's the instructions for the netCDF 4.2 C library, which also works for 


More detailed instructions just for the older version 4.1.3 are here:
