developer tools don't come with a Fortran compiler, so you have to first
install one comaptible with the C compiler you'll be using.  If you use
MacPorts, I think you can just use "port netcdf-fortran" and it will
handle all the dependencies.  Some people have also reported success with
HomeBrew.  For building netCDF-Fortran from source yourself, follow these
