NetCDF-4 depends on the HDF5 library for some of its features, so you have
to install the HDF5 library first, unless you only want support for netCDF-3
features.  If you only need netCDF-3 features, you can build netCDF-4 with
the "--disable-netcdf4" configure option, and then you won't need HDF5.

The latest released version of netCDF-4 is netCDF-4.3.0, and instructions for 
building the netCDF C and netCDF Fortran libraries are here:


If instead, you only want to build the netCDF-3 "classic" library, use these


If you need to build the netCDF-4.1.3 version (which includes both C and
Fortran libraries, but also has some bugs that have been fixed since its
release in 2011), you can follow these instructions instead:


More information on the differences between netCDF-3 and netCDF-4 is here:
