The default installation is in /usr/local/, so the library should be in /usr/local/lib/, the header file should be in /usr/local/include/, and the utilities shuld be in /usr/local/bin/. If you want things installed somewhere else, you need to use the --prefix=/some/where/else option to configure. If things are not where you expect, you could send us the config.log file to help determine what happened. --Russ > -----Original Message----- > From: Unidata netCDF Support [mailto:address@hidden > Sent: Tuesday, June 25, 2013 2:20 PM > To: Weber, Keith E > Cc: address@hidden > Subject: [netCDF #ZVD-828686]: compile error cannot compute sizeof (off_t) > > Keith, > > > > I am attempting to build the netcdf-fortran-4.2 source code.
