[netCDF #VHG-516000]: netCDF failing on install, hdf5 error?

Hello Jacob,

The reason the old version is being picked up at runtime is likely because the 
linker is finding the older library first.  You might be able to override this 
by specifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/jhedeliu/wrf/ver3_7/hdf5-1.8.15/hdf/lib at 
runtime.  If your program were called 'foo', you would do this as follows:

    $ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/jhedeliu/wrf/ver3_7/hdf5-1.8.15/hdf/lib ./foo

Alternatively, you could do this as an environmental variable, but I would 
strongly suggest that you not do it as a global/persistent setting; this could 
cause problems for other programs.

Another alternative, if this does not work, would be to rebuild hdf5-1.8.15 and 
disable the shared library, leaving only the static library.  You would do this 
by passing '--disable-shared' to the 'configure' script packaged with 
hdf5-1.8.15.  This way, netcdf would link against the static library when 
built, and would not seek out a shared libhdf5 at runtime.

I hope this helps,
