This is a problem with the configuration of the remote data test server
used in the old and unsupported version 4.1.3, which has since been fixed 
to point to a new test server that will work correctly, so it's not a 
problem with your netCDF build.

You can either choose

  1. to complete the test and installation of version 4.1.3
     after a "make clean" and rerunning configure and "make check",
     using the configure option "--disable-dap-remote-tests"


  2. Use the current supported release, version, and following
     the similar configure and build instructions here:


I recommend approach 2, which also has fixes for other bugs in the 4.1.3
release.  One difference is that version has the Fortran support
unbundled in a separate distribution, which you would need to build and 
install after installing the netcdf C library, if you need the 
netCDF Fortran library.

The downloads of the latest ( C release and the 4.2 Fortran release 
are available here:
