The config.log you sent doesn't show that CPPFLAGS or LDFLAGS were successfully 
set.
There is a section at the end of config.log listing all the environment 
variables that
the configure script can see, and it includes

   ## ----------------- ##
   ## Output variables. ##
   ## ----------------- ##
      ...
   CPPFLAGS=''
      ...
   LDFLAGS=''

I'm not sure why your setting these variables in tcsh isn't working for the 
configure 
script, but that's why the installed HDF5 library isn't being found.

One possibility is that you're running the configure script as the root user, 
perhaps
with "sudo", which would not inherit some environment variable settings made as
a non-root user.  This used to be in the netCDF C installation instructions, 
but it seems
to have been omitted in the current documentation.  Similar instructions are in 
the
netCDF-Fortran installation documentation:

     If you set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH (or DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH) environment variable 
[...], 
     don't use the "sudo" command before the following "configure" or "make 
check" 
     commands. Using "sudo" causes the LD_* environment variables to be 
ignored, as a 
     security precaution. You can use "sudo make install" as the last step, but 
you 
     shouldn't need to use "sudo" before that.
