[netCDF #RMQ-116404]: NETCDF install issues

Thanks for the config.log files.  They don't reveal anything helpful, but
made me think to ask an important question:  Did you get netCDF-4.3.0 from 
one of our distribution tarballs:


or did you get the developer version from our SVN repository:


If you got the developer version, it would not have contained the configure
script or aclocal.m4, and you would have had to run autoreconf to
generate those.  That might explain why you got the message 

> WARNING: 'aclocal-1.13' is missing on your system.
> You should only need it if you modified 'acinclude.m4' or
> 'configure.ac' or m4 files included by 'configure.ac'.

You definitely should build from the actual ftp tarball.

Another remote possibility is that you retrieved a bad version of the tarball
that existed on our FTP site for a few hours on May 3, before it was replaced 
by a corrected version, and you have been building from that bad tarball.  If
that's the problem, apologies, we didn't think anyone retrieved that 
before we fixed it.

Otherwise, I don't know why you're seeing the error, which we can't reproduce
