There's not enough information to tell just looking at the error message above. The error message means a simple Fortran program compiled to conftestf.o can't be linked to a simple C program compiled into conftest.o, so that the Fortran program can call a function defined in the C program. If you look at config.log towards the end of the file, the Fortran and C programs being compiled are shown, when the error occurs. The extra error information in config.log may be helpful in diagnosing the problem. What I see in config.log, using compatible versions of gcc and gfortran, is ouput like this, indicating successful linking: configure:19027: checking if Fortran "byte" is C "signed char" configure:19037: gcc -c -I/usr/local/include -g -O2 conftest.c conftest.c: In function 'sub_': conftest.c:4:3: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function 'exit' configure:19040: $? = 0 configure:19043: gfortran -g -O0 -fno-inline -c conftestf.f configure:19046: $? = 0 configure:19049: gfortran -o conftest -g -O0 -fno-inline conftestf.o conftest.o configure:19052: $? = 0 configure:19055: ./conftest configure:19058: $? = 0 configure:19060: result: yes ... If you can't figure it out from looking at config.log, send the whole config.log file to us and we'll see if we can help, but it may take several days ... --Russ > On Mar 24, 2013, at 4:22 PM, Unidata netCDF Support > <address@hidden<mailto:address@hidden>> > wrote: > > Hi Yanshi, > > I am trying to install netCDF on my MACOS X 10.8.6. > I have installed the netCDF-22.214.171.124 without error by > > ./configure --disable-netcdf-4 > make > make check > make install > > However, I could not find the the netcdf.mod and typesizes.mod under > /usr/local/ > > The netCDF-126.96.36.199 package only installs the C library.
