[netCDF #XKL-450124]: Setting the deflation level via the Fortran interface

Hello Arjen,

Thank you very much for supplying your fix; this is very helpful!  It makes me 
optimistic that formal fortran support for MSVC/Fortran (Intel, PGI, etc) will 
not be too difficult.

Thanks again, have a great day,

> nc_var_par_access and nc_c reate_par_fortran.
> With the Fortran interface library for NetCDF4 (netcdff.lib/dll) was

> nc_create_var as documented. The macro MSC_EXTRA is necessary, because
> on Windows you need to explicitly export routines from a DLL.
