[netCDF #UUS-259413]: pnetcdf and netcdf

I am getting very confused about pnetcdf support.

makes me think that pnetcdf code should be in libsrc or as a separate dispatch 
However the current code has all the pnetcdf stuff in libsrc4.
When the --enable-pnetcdf is set for configure, should we treat this like a 
of netcdf-3 or netcdf-4?
