[netCDF #PSA-339289]: netCDF 4.3.3 build problem....

Hi Michael,

Another user has asked about the same problem you encountered building 
netCDF for Solaris.

Did you ever come up with a workaround or fix that let you compile, check, and
install netCDF-4.3.3 on Solaris 9? Or did you upgrade and succeed that way?

I'm asking, because I would be able to either pass on whatever solution you came
up with, or incorporate any workaround you found into our next release, if all 
tests then passed on other platforms.
