[netCDF #BCT-221199]: Error while configuring netcdf-4

The immediate problem you're encountering is that your Fortran
compiler, /usr/bin/f77 (fort77 Version 1.15), is incapable of
compiling Fortran-90 files, a capability which is required to build
and install the netCDF Fortran-90 interface, which is the default for
all netCDF-4 versions.  If you have a different Fortran compiler you'd
like netCDF to use, you have to specify it as the value of the FC
environment variable before running the configure script, as in

  FC=/usr/bin/gfortran ./configure --prefix= ...

To see more details about options to configure and enviroment variables,
use "./configure --help" .

If you really don't need the netCDF Fortran programming interface, you
could just specify FC="".  But in that case there is no reason to use
the old netCDF-4.1.3 version that builds both the C and Fortran
libraries.  Even if you need the Fortran library, it would be better to
use a more recent supported version of the netCDF C library, such as
the recently released netcdf- version with the recently
released netcdf-fortran-4.4.2, according to these instructions:
