[netCDF #UWL-778089]: ncgen

> I found ncgen in both /usr/local/bin and /usr/bin directories.

--prefix, the default is /usr/local, so it would have been installed in
/usr/local/lib/ncgen.  You can check the creation dates on the files in /usr/bin
and /usr/local/bin with

  ls -l /usr/bin/ncgen /usr/local/bin

to see what was just installed and what is jus an old file from a previous

That shows that you still have an old version of ncgen in /usr/bin, but it was
not installed from netcdf- ...
