[netCDF #AUR-797681]: Installing netcdf-fortran-4.4.1 as non-root user


It is odd that the tests were failures, as they are run in the build directory, 
pre-install.  It's also odd that the installation failed, as you should of 
course have write permission to $HOME.  Can you provide the config.log and the 
log generated by running the tests?  I can take a look at those and see if I 
can figure out what is going on.
