[netCDF #KXO-829308]: Error: Symbol 'nf_endian_big' at (1) has no IMPLICIT type

Hi Larry,

Sorry for the delay in this response.

First, thanks for the helpful attachment of your 
installation_procedure.txt. It's the kind of quick
list of steps that many users are looking for.

The error you are seeing seems to indicate that the "netcdf.inc"
file is not being found when you run the tests. Or maybe an older
netcdf.inc file is being found from a previous installation, for
example in /usr/include/netcdf.inc.

The netcdf.inc that cpomes with netcdf-fortran-4.4.1 has the
following statements:

      integer nf_endian_big
      parameter (nf_endian_big = 2)

which declare a type for the nf_endian_big parameter, so any 
program that has the

      include 'netcdf.inc'

statement and uses the right compiler directive to tell where to
look for the .inc include file should get the type.

Maybe that information will help find the problem ...
