[netCDF #HCI-914365]: Building NetCDF4 on Windows

Hi David,

Sorry it's taken so long to respond to your question.  I was away for the last

That looked good, and I just merged it it, but we still need to add a 
CMakeLists statement to
test for the availability of m4.  Ward's working on that, but since you 
evidently already have
m4, that's not relevant to the problems you're seeing.

I'm not much of a cmake expert, but you shouldn't have to specify the same 
specify those at all. 

I think both of those should be set properly if you just set
-DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH="C:\Program Files (x86)\netCDF 4.3.1-rc1\x32".
You shouldn't need to specify a "-INCLUDE=" argument either, which 
I'm not familiar with and have never used with cmake.

Also, the -DENABLE_NETCDF_4:BOOL=ON is unnecessary, since it's the default.

We're hampered here, because I know only a little about cmake and Windows 
but can understand the Fortran issues.  Ward complements my expertise in
knowing a lot about cmake and Windows, but not much about Fortran.  So,
we'll try to work together to make some progress on getting this working,
but expect it to take some time ...
