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-18.104.22.168 version with the recently released netcdf-fortran-4.4.2, according to these instructions: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/docs/getting_and_building_netcdf.html --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: BCT-221199 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
