We didn't develop and don't use or support wgrib2, but it apparently
includes an old version of the netCDF source distribution (version 3.6.3
from June, 2008).

My first recommendation would be to build and install netCDF-4 from 
the current version, using the --disable-netcdf-4 configure option if
you only need the netCDF-3 features and functions for wgrib2:


After that is installed, there ought to be a way to specify for wgrib2 to
use that installed library, but you would need to determine that from
the wgrib2 installation instructions.

Alternatively, we may be able to help with the netcdf-3.6.3 problem, but
would need more information, including the config.log file generated in
the netCDF source directory and all the output from "make check" for
netCDF. You might get a quicker or better answer by seeking assistance
from the wgrib2 developers or community, where this problem may have
encountered and solved before.
