[netCDF #BFT-227872]: Mac OS 10.9 netcdf-4.1.3 failed tests


I actually did find a way to build 4.1.3 on modern OSX systems, but
it requires inserting an additional statement in one of the source
files, as described here:


Assuming you've got HDF5 installed in $H5DIR, you can then configure 
with --disable-dap-remote-tests, build, and install:

LDFLAGS="-L${H5DIR}/lib" ./configure --prefix="${NCDIR}" 
--disable-dap-remote-tests && make all && make check && make install

However, getting a new version is preferred, with three years of bug
fixes and other improvements ...


> Both Russ and I have tried compiling 4.1.3 on our OSX workstations and also 
> fail to get netcdf to build.  Given the age of the release, there's 
> unfortunately nothing to be done for modern platforms on our end.  You may 
> want to try the latest release, 4.3.2.  Note that, starting with netcdf 4.2, 
> the fortran and C++ functionality has been split out from the main library 
> and must be installed separately.  You can download the source code from 
> these libraries at the following pages:
> http://github.com/Unidata/netcdf-c/releases
> http://github.com/Unidata/netcdf-fortran/releases
> http://github.com/Unidata/netcdf-cxx4/releases
> I hope this helps, I'm sorry we can't provide a solution for building 4.1.3 
> on a modern OSX machine.
